You simply don't win an argument with a group of trolls by feeding them.
But, in all who fairness, which side is 'not' a troll in this story??? There is no way Gene is not milking this for all the publicity he can get. The guy licenses KISS coffee houses and coffins for crying out loud!!
After all, what is his loss? Would his website really have generated more revenue during the DDoS'ing than what this much publicity would have cost?
I'm just waiting for him to post a Google image-searched picture of a bloodied kid with a caption saying "We got one" like that white supremacist web radio host did a few years back.
