 If I click through:
http://blockchain.info/tree/2893660

 I can see the LinNode theft.

 I can also see IP's.

 Has anyone tried to contact the people at these nodes? It's a shame I can't copy and paste the IPs.
 
 Is there anything I can do to to avoid accepting coins that have had contact with thefts in the same way MtGox does? (disgarding that this may be a philosophically flawed idea for the moment)

 Is there a summary as to what happened regards the MyBitcoin and Gox thefts as well? Possibly an easier to navigate map or general commentry that is understandable to the layperson.


edit, afterthought: There ought to be something that automates the whole process of watching the coins move and looking up IP addresses. This would also make the privacy situation much clearer for all
There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Header-only clients like MultiBit trust that the majority of mining power is honest for the purposes of enforcing network rules such as the 21 million BTC limit. Full clients do not trust miners in this way.

The IP addresses are useless. Anyone can relay their transactions through any other node. Simply blocking blockchain.info from connecting to your node will 'cause some other random node to appear to be the source of your transaction (depending on who blockchain.info hears it from first since they won't hear it from you anymore).

You can use the -addnode command line parameter to direct which other node shows up in blockchain.info.

While the blockchain info may be more accurate than not for casual bitcoiners (although it is still wrong alot of the time) it will be completley inaccurate for anyone taking the most trivial steps to hide their IP.
