	Yep. For instance, the ´owners´ of the original hidden wiki were
	somehow forced to censor their own site by some kind of
	anonymous clowns. 

	By anynomous I mean both in the literal sense, and as retards
	perhaps related  to the clown ´hacker´ ´collective´

	So, how was that done? How do a bunch of script kiddies get to
	dictate what the owner of a long standing service does?

	I bet that any of the tor apoligists here would fail to provide
	any insight into the problem .

	They will parrot that 

	1) tor is open source!!!

	2) any compromise of a service hosted in the onion network can
	be ´explained´ (away) by PHP exploits.
