Why did they target the gaming site ragezone?
My impression was to get noticed, Rage Zone is a pretty big site, with thousands of visitors a day this would be an easy way to direct traffic to them, notice their url everywhere.
It could be just for fun, or had a grudge against someone at ragezone who knows.
Is your site in danger? It might just be.
