I don't know the website in question; can anyone share its onion domain?
If it is V2 (not V3), then we should deprecate V2 fast.

This is not how a bug tracker works.

If you find out a bug, please let us know.

There can be a zillion possibilities as to how, maybe he told some friends, maybe he ended up bragging about it on irc, maybe his server configuration leaked, maybe the sysadmin guy for his host looked at what's in his server, maybe ..., maybe ..., [spam removed], maybe... etc

Excuse me but your software named Tor is failed on this situation. Isn't this a bug?

Can you please be more specific? Do you know what the bug is? We can not write a blog post (let alone fix a bug), if we don't have any details. It smells like a firefox bug, but based on the Google Translate translations there's nothing we can do. We'll close this bug again unless this becomes actionable.

Do you have any proof that Tor is actually the thing that failed in this situation and not a basic OpSec fail like always (such as using your real name in an email, not using Qubes OS 4 or higher with Whonix, ...etc)?
