Default SMS/Text bomb website?

So I came across this website and I was considering using it to mess with friends and maybe a few d-bags, but I was wondering if it could be considered harassment legally? Or could it even be traced to my IP? In the rules it mentions no threats and I wasn't planning on it, but it would be fun to annoy some people.

Any thoughts?

I would advise against it for numerous reasons. Most isp's backlog dhcp records for 180 days. While it would be fun to mess with your friends their retaliation would be swift! Best wishes.

I say go for it, but choose your victims wisely and keep it light-hearted.

It is legal, however, if you take it too far it could be construed as harassment. My advice, keep it light hearted and chose your victims wisely. I used a bomb app on my phone with a couple friends before, its funny but it could get out of hand.

EDIT: I thought of something after I posted, I wonder if you could be held financially responsible if the person receiving didn't have unlimited texts (if such a person even exists anymore). Be careful is my advice.

Why would the recipient need to have unlimited texts?

The recipient is going to get bombarded with texts so I would hope they have unlimited messages.
I would be careful doing something like this.

Haha, I didn't even think of that. Can you imagine if you sent like 300 texts to someone with pay-per-use? That would be at least $30-$60 every time you did that. That's a really good point.

Ok so what if I am not on a contract and I have no more credit and someone sent all these texts? What would happen?
