Did Think Secret pay for people to give them secrets?!

Does anyone know if Think Secret paid people for tips? I think that does change the nature of this debate, just like if Think Secret broke into Apple’s offices.

Someone tried to post this to my comments today, but they used a bogus email so it didn’t go live:

If you’re so uncertain of the legality of what your blog publishes, then of course you should shut it down. Now. Are you actively engaging in corporate espionage like Think Secret? Are you paying people to break a contract like Think Secret? Then shut down your blog. Now.

I’ve been searching on Google for evidence of this and the best I can find is that Think Secret encouraged people to send them tips which almost every publication does.
