So someone was paid to find those images??? Sounds like a disturbing job.
I doubt a person was involved, except maybe to program an
automated bot to know what to search for.

And that bot was most likely one of Giganews' own, not the ones that MediaDefender use. If it had been the latter, chances are that Giganews would have reported a much higher percentage of CP posts on Usenet, given how inaccurate such tools that are used by the anti-piracy companies are.

In one of the past articles there as a link to a press release (that's no longer posted) that stated "The Attorney Generals investigation reviewed millions of pictures over several months, uncovering 88 different Newsgroups that contained a total of 11,390 sexually lewd photos featuring prepubescent children". Yes they paid someone (or some people) money to surf the download and look at millions of pictures of porn. They likely used a bot or some other automation software for the actual downloading, they still apparently reviewed them in person.
