This is mainly because of the lack of skill involved and is best left to the skiddies of anon(not calling them all skiddies but differentiating between those who know their shit and those who are only of use during some protests) an because around here we keep it legal, now if in some hypothetical there was a legit reason for a dos I'd advice you to never do it from any service you've payed for(and paying with someone elses money is even more frowned upon and opening yourself up to all kinds of legal actions much worse then those for a ddos) but instead use those services to discover vulnerable hosts to launch the attack from.
I see you've already done a bunch of missions in a short time so I'm sure you can find more interesting ways to get your message across.
In any case, welcome to HTS have fun and keep fighting the good fight
TL;DR; less ddos, moar hax, keep it interesting, and around here.. keep it legal

I agree with this 100%. I believe that in order to be well rounded you need to be able to understand a wide range of attack methods to the point of at least being able to execute them in basic form in a controlled environment. Logical and I have been researching MiTM methods a lot recently and I have found articles that state that many company network admins who allow wireless connections who claim to know what the attack is but cannot even begin to setup a mitm, let alone fully fathom how detrimental it can be for a company and someone's personal identity. So often preventative measures go overlooked and blatantly ignored due to ignorance. This could be all based on laziness, lack of fear of skiddie tools, or just simple stupidity.
However, weekend is right. Additionally, I say good on you or anyone who takes active steps to learn something new, no matter what it is. Just don't discuss intent on what you might use it for lol.
