    Default LOL why is everyone so pissed off at Tazmo?

    I've read a few threads on people hating Tazmo...and honestly, I don't see why people should be pissed off LOL before you guys start flaming at me, hear out my reasons and let me know what you think

    I mostly hear about people complaining Tazmo selling free translated mangas/animes, so I'll just talk a bit about that.

    I understand that it's upsetting for the scanners/etc. to see their volunteer work being sold on NarutoFan for a profit (monthly subscription, I guess). When I hear about this, I really wonder if they are pissed off because they think the translated mangas should be free, or is it because they're jealous of the amount of money Tazmo is making?

    If the translators are just pissed off because the translated manga should be free, shouldn't the original magazine (shounen jump or w/e) be pissed off even more at the translators for posting their manga online for free? LOL If we look at the original interest of why mangas are even published in the first place (for a profit), wouldn't translators be the ones that are doing something "WRONG"? I'm sure you have visited some anime sites where animes like "FMA season 2" have been removed because it was licensed by Funanimation. Why? Because these sort of entertainment aren't suppose to be free. Of course, I love the free mangas/anime but I'm just saying that out of all these distributors, wouldn't Tazmo be considered as the only one that's serving the original purpose of the mangas? And manga authors probably want see their mangas sold online rather than being offer for free LOL

    If the translators are just pissed of because they're jealous...I honestly think that just pathetic LOL why don't you just start a NarutoFan #2? Of course, not many people can. And I'm willing to bet that only 1 in 10 000 people that reads this post might actually be capable of recreating a website like NarutoFan. And trust me, the amount of work that Tazmo and his admins have put into creating NarutoFan is worth the amount of money he is making. If you can make a website like NarutoFan, PM me, I'll personally pay you $500 USD.

    Flame away =)

    it's a fairly new topic for me, I really can't seem to wrap around why people are so pissed off LOL

    if you can properly explain to me why, I might not find it so funny anymore =)

    As far as I am concerned, the people who payed for the scans were responsible for it themselves, since they were too lazy too google a free site (e.g. StopTazmo ).

    But the bigger problem wasnīt just Tazmo getting money from people, but that they couldnīt cancel their payments (IIRC).
    And then came the rumours of him buying porn with the money (and not using it just for the site maintenance) and beating his wife and whatnot xD

    At the moment, I donīt know how things stand, but I guess that with the multitude of free sites around, thereīs no reason to try to get Tazmo stop his business or whatever...

    As for scanlating being illegal from the start, thatīs no secret... but then trying to scam people into buying it?

    Hope that cleared you up some xD

    He's not serving the original purpose of manga because the original manga-ka (manga artist, for example, Oda who makes One Piece) isn't getting the money Tazmo is getting for charging people to read the manga's. It would be legal if the author allowed him and he had copyright privileges and the author got his share of the profit since it's his/her story being sold.

    Because he's a pretty greedy and immoral douche bag and his mods are generally shitty ass kissing cock sucking dipshits who don't know how to run shit in any fashion. I'm kinda shocked they haven't pissed someone off to the point where they hacked and dicked them over in real life.

    to afmonki
    Are you suggesting that stoptazmo.com become a paid service as well?
    When that happens, if it happens , the glory days of manga reading will be no more for me.
    I mean honestly, i couldnt find a free manga website as good as this one.
    I am so greatfull for stoptazmo.com

    Uh LOL no, I'm pretty sure--LOLOLOL--that the creators of the manga and anime would much prefer that they're being distributed FREE than have some stranger take profit for their creations LOLLLLLLL.

    ... LOL.
