We don't.

There's probably some room beneath "massive corporation" (profit-wise) that should be taken down but is difficult to under current law. There could certainly a .hk site anonymously registered and run that does some serious damage.
But, in the internet, no one can really hide, so at most this is an extra few steps. At most. The government seems clearly able to get to whoever is responsible and shut them down.

So yeah. We don't. It should be difficult to do these things, even when it's the right thing to do.
