I don't recall ever seeing Hirameki's site display links to torrents or whatnot. Where/from whom did you learn about that hacking business? No offense intended, but it seems a bit far-fetched to me.
I remember it... Their BBS style fourm went from a nice place to discuss their games, to OMG 500 threads of DOWNLOAD GAME FOR FREE. Needless to say the forums basically went dead after that... and for some god forsaken reason they couldn't attempt to fix it for many months (maybe a year like TDOMMX says?). I remember the store had links to pirating threads too (reviews).

If you use the wayback machine maybe you can see what it looked like during this mad house. A few times users would try to bump their threads, showing support for Hirameki. But, since they had no admins or something; it just got buried again and again.

I remember they "fixed" it by deleting all the spam accounts and made it harder to do it again. But, just a little later it was back to the spam.

They put this up afterwards :

Here's how it once looked :

Ah looking at the forums :
