umm nope...
Have you ever used an online manga reader?
I have. And while i'm using it, I have never even thought of going to the scanlators' page to check out the release, like 90% of the leechers. Most of my friends said it's easier to use online readers because you can find everything there, no need to find the scanlators' sites for series.

Uploading manga on online readers doesn't get us any new recruits dammit!

Actions have consequences, and the release mod did something wrong that other people (and especially other scanlators) deserve to know about. I hardly see how this is public humiliation; all I see is the mods telling everyone "help us keep this guy in check, since we can't be everywhere at once and we know he has done some shady things in regards to honouring scanlators' requests".

If MU was the bad guy here, I really doubt that they would have given the guy a second chance. I think they're being lenient, to be honest.

AFAIK, that's the official MU policy for troll releases

P.S. I'm in part angry with them because I sometime try to help scanlation groups by outlining mistakes in their releases (they had some missing pages) - and getting THAT in their next release was far from the response I wished for...

Errr...I'm just pointing out. That's for 1st April policy. I've seen that for years now. The same message after we had lots of funny 1st April releases one 1st April.

Of course it is completely unnecessary to visit scanlators site while you are reading through all the manga that is available on that online reader. But once you reach the end of uploaded part - it's time for MU and scanlators' sites. Otherwise, you just weren't interested enough in that manga in the first place.

So you are finding it totally alright to let them earn money on the mangaka's work? Making scanlators work in the gray zone to become totally black so everyone can see something illegal is going around?

Huh, you want us to keep track of him.. he can just make another id everytime.
What's the point of watching him, if he, himself, doesn't aware of his wrong doing..

Did he do something with his mod privileges that an ordinary user that is not a MU mod can't? If he didn't, and were doing only things ordinary users can, it should have absolutely nothing to do with MU, and shouldn't affect his position at all.
Lambchopsil's post (and actions) mean that MU is losing its impartial status and is taking a side - which will only bring bad things for MU.

You are seeing it from a wrong perspective. He isn't a normal user when he is a mod. It means that he's no longer a normal user until he throws away the mod status he got. It's like a uniform. When at the police station the policeman have it on but when he leaves the place he can take it off but not at the police station. So as long as he is still a mod at mu he will never be a normal user.

If he wasn't a mod then there would be no problems for mu but he is a mod for mu. That means that the actions he takes affects the whole group which is mu. That's how any group works. The leader has to take a stand if he/she when someone's actions from their group conflicts with the groups policy because it affects the whole group. This is the problem here...the impartial status mu got will be lost if someone starts doing something that conflicts with the policy and the leader doesn't do anything about it. If it keeps happening then the person who keeps doing something that goes against the groups policy need to be expelled, otherwise it would be bad for the whole groups structure and fame.

Lamb had to take that action otherwise it would send a sign to every scanlator group in this world that mu is taking the side of mangafox and finds it okay if their staffmembers are uploading releases to mangafox. You forget what he's done already...something that goes against the impartial status of mu.

Do you find it bad that my(and your) ISP is earning money on your and mangaka's work?
Or that Google (or any other filesharing site) is earning money on the same thing?
Frankly, I think that not only mangaka - you too should earn money for your volunteer work spreading things people enjoy. Unless communism comes, someone will always profit unfairly, and you should look for the good side of things (more people can share your joy), not for the bad side of things. There's always a chance that a fan that got addicted to the manga on said evil online reader will buy a figurine or two, earning money for the mangaka in question, so it's not always bad thing.

If he's a mod, he acts as a representative of MU.

I second thee, Mai~.

Anyone who actually quited/is quiting scanlation right now, will be too lazy to get back in for reasons :-
- the group and the releases are not much appreciated nowadays.
- getting staffs who wants to work with you(& the team) instead of "shrooming" a new group up is very low...
- and etc...

T1, I do envy your simple free and easy life that are going to hit you after this ^o^
