    The only thing I could think that he's doing that's against the law is providing the manga and anime downloads (lol). They're both licensed in the USA, but he distributes them anyway. Of course tons of other sites also do the same so I don't see any reason why he does anything worse except he has like 1000x more visitors than most other sites. Lol sorry if I didn't make sense or if I'm off topic
    Not only that but he resells the work of the translators, even when they have repeatedly asked him to remove their releases, and in response Tazmo told them no because he would loose most of his donations.

    If he removed the manga, why would he need donations?

    He wouldn't need nearly as many media servers if any.
    I admit, yes, you are correct in that sense. He should listen to the anime/manga translation groups because they make the media availble to him and his members, and also bring in profits to him. Seeing that he doesn't listen to the groups does make me think a little less of him, but not to the point of a total idiot. But of course he also would loose like all his visitors + donations + ad money if he didn't have manga, so either way he looses. Again, sorry if I didn't make sense :P ... it's late and I'm listening to music at the same time.

    You know what? You can download every chapter of that manga for free off of Narutofan.com if you want to. Was that known? Or is that news to the senseless flamers here?

    I'm not trying to flame NarutoFan, I'm just saying that Inane told them to take their manga off, and taz should have listened.

    But no one would click his ads or donate to him much less even go to his website if he didn't offer manga. So, that is just like charging for it.

    Even Tazmo himself said that he would loose everything if he removed his manga.

    Oh no way, I don't think Tazmo's an idiot at all. If you are running any sort of operation where you dupe idiots into giving you money then you're pretty smart, if slightly misguided, in my book. The way I see it, Tazmo started off being a fan of Naruto, thought "Hey there's no good sites to get easy access to this shit." and made a site. Then he offers access to manga and anime downloads, get's some folks to write content for stuff like Bio's and episode guides, then lets things work themselves out.

    He put in a little bit of effort, made use of other people's work, and made some cash. Not many people can refuse that sort of a situation. The only idiots are the people giving money because they assume Tazmo is the one translating the show and the manga, and the idiots who come here to post "OGM TAZMO SI EVIL AND AETS BABIESES!!". As far as I am concerned, unless you are one of those two, ignorant noob-children being duped or the ignorant noob-children who put bullshit into the mouth of stoptazmo by accusing tazmo of random things that Kane (or someone else who makes legit arguments) never said, then you aren't an idiot in this situation.

    Now if you give money to him with the understanding that he's just providing easier access to the content, and not actually creating the content himself, then fine. That's your choice. So long as you understand it, then no one should have any argument with you because it's your money.

    ... Umm dude, half the time the "color" pages are fanart and translation (for a team) is not that difficult to do well...

    Their B/W pages = medium high quality at best.

    I never said Tazmo was doing anything wrong except using Inane manga when they told him to take it off. Besides that, I think he's pretty smart for being able to have such a huge anime site and make money off it. I don't see why people wouldn't want to donate; the page loads fast, he has all the manga, and he has some anime for direct download, and you also don't have to see ads and get entered in a prize contest. I don't mind if he makes a ton of money; it takes a lot of work keeping a website up, especially one the size of nf.
