Gay gaming blog
target of online hate crime

LGBT-friendly video game blog GayGamer.net was knocked off-line with a flood of threats and hate speech in what appears to be a hate crime, reports news blog Kotaku.

Flynn DeMarco, the site's owner, said sporadic "denial of service" attacks started Wednesday morning, causing delays on the site. By Friday GayGamer.net was able to block the attacks, prompting the hacker to flood the site's forums and chat rooms with hate speech, including several death threats. All the attacks originated from the same IP address in Philadelphia.

The site has been forced to go off-line until the attacks could be permanently blocked. DeMarco hopes to make the site operational this week. (The Advocate)
