Thank you for taking the time to post. It feels like a part of my childhood will also be gone too since I've invested so much time into this site, but the world will move on.

I started noticing a weird thing though. An extra page with "Stop Tazmo!" at the top that seemed to be a newsletter. I read it and it confirmed the scam I had gone through had been a scam, but it told me something more. It talked about a different site that was dedicated to giving out scans for free in an effort to "Stop Tazmo". I was wary at first. NarutoFan was fresh in my mind. But these were scanners putting this message in, so I was curious. When I got here this place was like a dream come true for me. No hunting. No searching. Butt loads of Manga I had never heard of, but you bet your ass I wanted to read. It seemed too good to be true. I guess it was.
If the site just had links to download pages of other sites I would probably still use it. They are a pain to find.
First Post and Maybe Last,

it's been awhile ST , feel so sorry... i never donate anything..i only can pray for your best future there kevin..
I agree, there are certain free file sharing sites for file sharing. you can even make money off it by reselling their premium account or something like that; donno the details, but i know the more download you get, the more you make.

First post - On this account, forgot my previous login after my pc went kaput with all my roboform logins.
Wow.. this site takes me back, never did hang around to many times, nor did I download too many times,
probably grabbed a couple of series and that was it. But I did do something many many times - I
BOOKMARKED the shit of this site like I was going to download it all but never did. lol... silly me. You've got
to admit there was just some thing catchy about that site title - STOPTAZMO.
I do remember how I came across the site.. like most people from Narutofan., but the inevitable truth is this
was BOUND to happen sooner than later. As the Admin noted in his first post - "200-400k unique visitors...".
I am actually surprised the site lasted so long since I came across it around - 2005. I am not going to berate
around the bush - but this is the END.
I know there are some people who will like Stoptazmo to resurrect the mangas, it's just not feasible.
Sure they are a bunch of generous individuals out there - Even if those are willing to donate for the
upkeep of the server, the question will be for how long till be reach an impasse such as this?
My rationale behind this, is from what happened to another site that tanked - #Lurk ( Will 4 Ever Miss YOU) ;)
I dont really follow the manga sphere, so I don't really know the deal of today, given I hardly even
download any - priorities and all.
I would say this, just for the old time sake, if the forum element can remain. for the foreseeable future
I guess that would be fine, it is not possible that would be equally be fine.
I am grateful for the time and resource from Kevin (Admin) and others which helped Stoptazmo what it is/was.
I'd like to thank everyone for sharing their comments. I've not responded to every post lately since I did not have much to contribute but I'd like to so much thank you for posting.
It's good to hear that some still remember #Lurk. They shutdown years ago for some of the same reasons as I'm closing this site for, lack of money and time. Originally ST did nothing more than Mirror Lurk so that all their manga could be accessed online.
Wow. I haven't been here in 2yrs. I'm really sorry to see it all gone. I sincerely hope you find a solution so that the downloads can be put up again. I'm barracking for you!!
