Netflix temporarily down, LulzSec to blame?

Netflix temporarily down, LulzSec to blame? Netflix was down tonight temporarily with users trying to access the site from the Web or other devices getting the error posted at right.
While the service is back up and running (I'm streaming a movie via PS3 as I type), many experienced the downtime for hours.

Netflix has over 23 million users in the U.S. and Canada.

Angry users have blamed LulzSec for the downtime but it is unclear if the hacktivists are to blame.

For now, users are still reporting sporadic downtime, and there is no word if any data was compromised.

I was hoping it was just a glitch with them fixing instant streaming that they screwed up a couple weeks ago...but it appears they did not fix that.

It probably was just a server issue.

Now that everyone is pointing fingers at BallSack, I can't help but wonder if they are going to attack the world out of retribution because they didn't do it... or giggle because we're all onto them now?
