As we all know with the recent plausible evidence of Zhou Tong being the Bitcoinica hacker, we should recall the generosity of this theft compared to MyBitcoin.

Zhou Tong offered a 5,000 BTC refund of the 100,000+ BTC stolen. If we use 100,000 as optimistic estimate of the stolen coins, 5,000 easily amounts to 5%.

Looking back on MyBitcoin, they offered 49% of the total 154,406 stolen.

Whats the verdict? MyBitcoin was more generous than Zhou Tong.

Only if Zhou Tong promised to pay back 5%. He didn't just promise, he performed. Whereas Tom Williams only promised, paying back nothing except to Bruce Wagner his 25,000 BTC. Big difference. (somebody please correct me if I'm in error)

No. The evidence was not plausible. See: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=95738.msg1055046#msg1055046
