DDOS isn't same as protesting outside company store since people can still access those stores.


Have you ever seen a real protest or strike? They pretty much completely grind any form of business to a halt. In fact, a DDOS is far LESS destructive than a real-world protest, since it's a lot harder to deny people the right to stand in front of your store.
