Manga Distributor Target of Frequent Hacking
Anonymous writes: For the past few months the site of long time manga distributor, MagicBulletGirl, [also the home to the group Endless Youth and Co.] has been the target of hacking. She scans in various mangas from the magazine Shonen Sunday and seems to always be willing to buy manga if requested. Those zips of raw manga, as well as the ones of manga her group scanlates, were deleted in the most recent spree of hack-deleting.
The identity of the hackers is unknown.
The zips are currently in the process of being restored according to a message on the site.

Obtaining Manga Poll
I'm going with a more "serious" poll this time. Just choose the method you usually get your manga. I'm interested in knowing how many people use manga hosting sites...
Thanks go to Razril for suggesting the original question, to fallofkakashi for adding in another option, and last of all to MajorMarmot for reminding me to change the poll (or else I'd have forgotten...)

As a reminder, our mascot contest is still running:
http://www.mangaupdates.com/showtopic.php?tid=4274
We've had some good entries so far, but the more the merrier!

New for the previous poll:
Question: You are in a school based manga, what are you?

Choices:
The guardian (bully) of the school - votes: 423 (4.9%)
The head student, respected by all except by the gangs - votes: 676 (7.8%)
The pervert with the camera - votes: 603 (7%)
The quiet person in the corner - votes: 4467 (51.6%)
The beauty with friends - votes: 506 (5.9%)
The loud athlete - votes: 314 (3.6%)
The showy geek - votes: 633 (7.3%)
Not part of the breakfast club - votes: 792 (9.2%)
The one everyone beats up - votes: 235 (2.7%)
There were 8649 total votes.
The poll ended: March 1st 2008

It appears most of our users are the shy librarian types that'd rather be alone and read manga by themselves...
