This Virtual Sit-in website does not cause computers to crash.These automated features are simply used to reload a targeted webpage several times per minute.

The first Virtual Sit-in : On April 10,1998 FloodNet Tactical Version 1.0 was showcased during an Electronic Civil Disobedience action against Mexican President Zedillo’s web site. A Java applet reload function sent an automated reload request several times per minute to Zedillo’s page. Reports from participants and our observations confirmed that the more than 8,000 international participants in this first FloodNet action intermittently blocked access to the Zedillo site on that day.

WARNING: This is a Protest. The Virtual Sit-in is not a game.
Participation in electronic civil disobedience may have personal consequences as in any off-line political manifestation on the street.
