How many of these people were actually abusing or aiding in the abuse of children? Few, if any, I bet.

I'm in your camp here.  Yeah, viewing CP is wrong, but let's say one of the usernames links to the person--I think ruining that guy's life is worse than him viewing kiddie pictures.  OTOH the best way to stop the guys who make CP is to destroy the market for it...  still, while I approve of the site attack, I think releasing usernames was not a good thing.

Can you really destroy the market for it?

By "destroy the market" I meant aggressively go after people who view CP to such an extent that many who would try to get it are now afraid to.  I was countering my own opinion from the previous sentence.

Isn't that like saying that you'll destroy the market for movies by getting rid of The Pirate Bay?

There should be arrests if the police bother to investigate the leaked information. Anonymous has done more work than our police force has ever done regarding this case. If they work so hard to protect us, then they should be putting pedophiles to justice any second now.

What leaked information?  Usernames?  Please explain how someone is supposed to investigate "littlelover". 
You know, police go, investigate, look at ip, take informations and arrest.

It's on tor, there IS no IP to look at, at least not one that leads to somewhere besides a dozen tor nodes in Russia, Cuala Lumpur, the moon and Planet X.

It was novel to hear that there's a Bitcoin mining virus for Mac that also apparently scans people's hard drives for child porn.

Presumably, whoever is in central command of the virus could poke around elsewhere on any computer found to have child porn, looking for files to identify the owner, and then blow the whistle on them.

If that gets popular, that might be way more effective at busting CP than anything that could be done to a server.

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper wallets instead.
