I noticed this week that I couldn't get on their site until yesterday. Why do people do such things?

Why do people do such things?

Because they are complete prats and some of them think it's fun.

I tried to go on their site last weekend and spent ages without any success, eventually I ordered a graphic card from another site.

This must be costing them a fortune in lost sales.

I only found out after receiving an e-mail from them apologising about the attack and they provided a list of phone numbers, but by that time I'd already ordered from another firm.

Quickbeam,
I think they will be satisfied with just the head of the person concerned.
