Readers pillory Newsweek for ‘outing’ Bitcoin creator.

I'm glad we have a free press, but publishing the guys house and car with license plate number was a dick move given that bitcoin is used by a lot of criminals. The guy lives with his 93 year old mother.

As someone who greatly values his privacy that really pisses me off. I wouldn't be surprised if this had some sort of revenge motivation, clueless as I am to what the reason would be.

It's hysterical that Reddit, the kings of finding someone, making claims, digging into their past and making sweeping accusations is getting up in arms about this.

Which doesn't mean Reddit is wrong, hypocritical, or even that it's the same part of Reddit. It's just funny. Everyone can kind of learn from it.
