Why people call this so-called Korea DDoS a cyber war? Don't people know
how the Internet works yet?
The problem isn't that people fail to understand how the Internet works
(they do fail at this, but that's not the problem). The problem is how
exciting it is to use terms like "cyberwar." In the words of a prominent
if [people shouting "cyberwar"] want to be taken seriously, they need
to start releasing proof to the mailing lists and name specific
intelligence agency's who are conducting the Cyberwar. I don't think
there is a cyberwar, there will be intelligencers probing the networks
for secrets, thats not a cyberwar. Cyberwar is something completely
different [...] Cyberwar *could* be real, *look at this*. Although
the truth is, we haven't seen a Cyberwar yet, it's still in the
imaginary dream book stage.
Regardless of one's understanding of the Internet, getting to say "cyberwar"
is just too tempting for lots of people to resist.
