Ok, first off this is my first time posting here so hi.
I've been a fan of Naruto (the series, not narutofan.com) since the beginning.
Very early on I discovered narutofan.com. More recently, however, I discovered this website. I've looked at the allegations made against Tazmo, and the rebuttals made at stopkane.com. Honestly, I do see that many of the Tazmo's supporters claims are not warranted that are against this site. However, upon looking at the bashing that you have done against Tazmo, I have not seen one clear-cut piece of evidence condemning Tazmo. The recent new laptop situation...isn't the only way that anyone knew about it was the fact that Tazmo himself brought the point up? If he used narutofan.com money for that laptop would he really incriminate himself? Furthermore, he explained it was a birthday gift. While I completely agree he has no way of backing his claim up, nor do you.
The only thing against Kane that has any validity in my mind is the sticky. Yes, I heard the point that you all like the same server because of the DDOS protection. However, there are at least 10 anime sites on that server. I'm a pretty believing guy...but what are the probabilities of 10 different anime servers on one name? However, once again I may be completely wrong and that server may provide such nice protection that everyone likes it.
Overall, this argument comes down to this: Tazmo has been stealing money donated to him, yay or nay. I've run servers before myself and to hold all the anime that he has takes large amounts of funds. I've personally chatted with Tazmo and I really didn't find him to be an offensive person. In conclusion, whether Tazmo has or has not been stealing money, I have no idea. The point I'm trying to make is that there cannot be hard evidence to point to this short of spying on his monetary transactions. All the evidence I've seen is wholly circumstantial; then again most of the evidence I've seen against Kane is also circumstantial.
On a sidenote about NarutofanPLUS: I honestly don't know what to think about it. Personally, I don't see why anyone would sign up...I mean the Direct Server downloads arent that much faster than BitTorrent downloads. Is it another way to make more money? Maybe. However, simply alleging that "Tazmo is stealing more money" in my mind is not evidence. If anyone has any evidence on either side please post it. thx.
Thatís just my thoughts on the subject. Please don't flame me I'm just trying to bring a neutral perspective into the issue. I'd be glad to hear any comments, be they good or bad about this.
