To be honest this isn't a terrible idea and it was announced on their blog first

Plus 'stealing' CPU power from people 'stealing' content isn't exactly something for everyone to get upset about.

Yes, this is one of the things people like to forget about. If you go on a torrent file to steal content, you cannot really complain if you end up getting some CPU or graphic power stolen in the process Smiley

Well, they abuse of hardware of people who are there to abuse of the creative work of others without paying (that's downloading torrents).
I don't want to say that it is intrisecally wrong the latter, but then, how can be wrong if the abuse is happening the other way round?
It's a matter of Karma.

Yeah I can see that.  I guess they do deserve it.

This isn't malicious at all. I actually think this is a great idea - I would rather mine for them than see obnoxious / obtrusive ads

I'd much rather see ads which go into my ad blocker, but I don't use that site in particular.  I'd hate to end up on a site that does, especially when I am mining on another process on that machine at the time.  It'd probably crash.
