In 2012 when it was the more active, me a couple of other people though is that Cicada is probably an organization for or from journalist. They hold similar value as Julian Assange for example and what one of the winner said about the organization of the project seems pointing in that direction.
Cicada do not want to publish privacy related to software for the people but for organization that hold power against the state in a democracy.
The only thing they did for the people is spread awareness of crypto tool to people with their game. So in that regard i don't know if i support them or not.
