Is the onion dating service real
If anyone had taken the time to check the Tor Directory (a TOR hidden service) back when these claims were originally made, they would have found that all of the affected sites were still listed as "online." In fact, if you check today, you'll find that none of the sites Anonymous supposedly eradicated are actually gone at all.
The common argument here would be to mention Google or bit-torrent sites, but I think we can leave that discussion and just look what the value of adding the link would be.

There is not much in the way of reliable secondary sourcing about The Hidden Wiki, and blog pieces are not suitable sources either.
The Hidden Wiki's shady character can be inferred from its dark character, but extra-legal is not illegal, and to say "often" based on the article cited is less than accurate.
