Honestly, just like with most things Hiro does people will make a huge deal out of it and forget about it eventually. I remember when people thought CAPTCHA was going to ruin 4chan and now hardly anybody even notices it's a thing.
The 2chan article is pretty interesting though. The only way credit card numbers could be leaked is for 4chan pass members, so I'm not that worried. Interesting to see that shills are real. If you're going to spend money to shill stuff on an anonymous image board (or have "some kind of sexual obsessions") it's your own fault, honestly.
