Anonymous Strikes again!

Any LUUUXers have a site hosted by Go Daddy? If so then you probably experienced some down time today.

When I came home from work today, I tried logging into to update my exercise of the day, and couldn`t get on. I got an error message from Google stating the site didn`t exist. That`s strange, I was talking to support earlier in an e-mail about an upgrade.... Then I check their FB page & see that the site is down because Go Daddy was having issues. I check my news feed & everything was about Go Daddy.

Someone part of "Anonymous" hacked into Go Daddy today causing a lot of websites to be down. AnonymousOwn3r was tweeting all day that they were acting on their own & that Anonymous as a whole was not involved.
At first just a few thousand sites were down, but recent reports state that the numbers could be in the millions. All is now restored, but it makes many people question the security of the site.

Some say the hacker did it because Go Daddy supported SOPA, others say they just took advantage of a glitch the site was having & taking credit for it.

What do you think the reasons were for the hack, if it was a hack?
Do you have a site hosted through Go Daddy?
Were you affected at all?
