    actually several of the mods here did checks on the so called prize winners and found that none of them actually exist. they did ip searches and other things that even i dont understand and after much deliberation came to the conclusion that if that many people that supposedly won never existed then the rest must be bs as well. they didnt pull that out of thin air.

    I'm all for him buying porn with the money I donate... porn goes a long way to rubbing off the headache he gets from some of you guys . Anyway I could care less about the money and how he uses as long as things run smoothly, but if they are like they are now then I get angry... and I can because I pay... it's nice in that way

    The thing is, Tazmo is selling the work of fansubbers and scanlators. We work for free and we don't intend for our work to be sold. That's not acceptable on his part.

    I'm new, so I don't know much of what is going on, but I've read both pages of this debate and so far, the only legitimate complaint I've found (as an outside party) is that this Tazmo is asking payment for bandwidth to download free fansubs and scanlations and such.
    It makes sense to charge for better service, even if the item given through this service is free (if you've seen IGN and IGN Insider). Someone mentioned that the extra bandwidth they paid for was not delivered, but was it really TAZMO, or the internet connection?
    Some people are calling it 'donations' while others refer to it like a subscription. Which one is it?
    However, since these items provided are MEANT to be free, there should also be a link provided so that the option to receive it free is available. I've read that's been done. So far he seems to have covered himself.
    As for how he spends his money, why not use it for himself? (This is if they aren't donations.) It sounds like a business to me. Now, if they ARE donations, a donation is a donation. It's given in good faith. If the faith is betrayed then it's all on the betrayer. If the person who donated it meant it to be a real donation, they'd just shrug it off.
    So... what am I missing?
    (btw, I don't mean it to sound like I'm defending Tazmo or anything, I just don't see the problem.
    ...maybe... I'M BLIND!!! IT BURRRRNSSSS!!! )

    Moo.

    I think that NF+ has a subscription fee but he also asks for donations whether you are a NF+ or not.

    The problem is people think he's "selling" the scanlations which are meant to be free. In my opinion, charging for bandwidth is like paying for a cab. It is perfectly free to walk to the library but some people who have the means (and are lazy) would pay for the taxi. Does this mean that the taxi company is making an unfair profit off of the library? I think not. I, personally, am a firm believer in NEVER paying for ANYTHING online because with a small committment of time you can always find it for free, but if some lazy douche wants to take the easy road then that's up to him.

    That's a bad analogy. This is comparable to paying a hobo for a flier.

    Let's get this straight. Tazmo always post BOTH links to the Narutofan Plus! download, AND a link to the fansubber's torrent site. It's not as if he ain't giving you the option for a free download of Naruto.

    What does this mean? He's selling direct downloads, at higher speeds your miserable torrents will never achieve(especially older files). He's not selling you fansubs, one by one. He's making you pay for bandwidth, not the individual files. US$3.50 per month for 5.0GB of downloads, with the option to purchase more if you want. He's not making you pay US$3.50 for every episode of Shuffle!.

    He's selling direct downloads, not the movies itself. Get that straight.
    this is where you screw up, he does charge you for downloading, not for the bandwith, he could get an bttracker but no he want's to host directdownloads, why? just so he can trick you that your paying bandwith not to him self.

    and I have a hard time beliving that he links to all fansubbers torrent site for all the series, cuz if he did everyone would realize that they can get all that for free. cuz it is after all free fansubs, and what hes doing is selling FREE fansubs and now even FREE manga scans with that directmanga.com or whatever site...

    one more thing tazmo does, he takes manga without notification from free scanlators like zombie scans and then removes the credits and charges people to download them.

    Maybe you should actually look at his site. He has a page of links to torrent sites for Naruto anime downloads.
    I'm not here much, but if you have anything to say to me about Tazmo, you're either (a) fanatical, or (b) wrong. If not, we can be friends. Except you, Martyr. We can never be friends.
