Cloudflare, and the 120Gbps DDOS "that almost broke the Internet"

Is someone pissed off at Spamhaus, or was the intention to packet them so
hard their entire network ceased to exist so they can no longer offer
DROP/RBL/xyz service?

Seldom do hax0r nations target things without some type of
"justification". I don't really care who is being internet murdered, I
care why. 

It's probably the same people who have been posting news articles from
Ashworth's email.
