Oddly, Google Ads offered up this link as an ad - so I clicked it. (This is a link to the page, and will not count as an ad click.)

I don't think the amount of users seen online is an indication of a ddos, ddos's are usually done with tools that generate big loads of traffic to overload the server by sending a lot of requests to the webserver. Since I would think the amount of users are counted by actual users who use a web-browser which is most likely checked by which user-agent they are using to visit the website, signed in and guests.

I can only speak for SMF - it also counts bots. (Which may or may not be part of a DDoS.)

Hmm... It looks like they ran a quick test before hammering on the server.

I wonder if it's people angry we won't let them spam the server?
