Disclaimer: I am not blaming betcoin for this issue.
I'm making this post to raise awareness that this kind of thing can happen and how it can be avoided. I also want to make sure as many people as possible know what a piece of shit worldpeace is, and hope to see his account banned.
Yesterday during my session my internet suddently just stopped working. After a minute or two of resetting network adapters and stuff, I rebooted the router and it came back.
At the time I was in 2 $20 sattys, the $55 5k and the $33 10k as well as some cash games.
At my 10k table, "toworldpeace" came into chat and said something like "you want another 5 min twitchy? Check skype"
I had a new request, from "Leon" (worldpeace) Here is complete convo I had with him before realizing it was happening through skype and shutting it down. (I dont know what the removed message said)

At this point he started threating me at my tables, telling me to get back on skype or else, promising to dos me even longer. He eventually told me in chat to send him $20, and asking how i could be so stupid he was going to cost me so much more etc... There's absolutely no way I'd send this guy $1, even if it cost me hundreds or more. So I ignored him/told him to ead a few times.
This went on for 45 min - an hour. I was constantly restarting computer, router, attempting to release my ip, attempting to gooogle wtf to do and talk to friends. Eventually I figured out how to stop him.
I'm not going to spell out exactly what I did, but it just takes a quick "skype ddos protection" to figure out what you might not be doing already.
Also, if you're friends with worldpeace on skype, and aren't an expert on this kinda thing BLOCK HIM NOW
I was only able to manage a few screen shots of the chat due to the constant restarting and force closing everything, but here they are.
I sent betcoin support everything I had last night, and will be making sure WPNTD know exactly what happened and what account(s) are responsible.General
