Not my point. My point is the power is ultimately in the hands of the supplier.

If Japanese publishing companies say "screw you America!", non-nihonggo reading Americans are shit outta luck. Thats it. End of discussion.

Scanlators are an just another type form of supplier. If the (sole) scanlation group for a manga decides to ragequit(/the staff quits/whatever), non-nihonggo readers are shit outta luck. Thats it. End of discussion.

Got the money but don't know nihonggo? You're shit outta luck (unless you're rich enough to fund a translation/scanlation group).

But if what they promised to give you for free was defaced beyond recognition with curses aimed at some unrelated third party, should you be grateful? See A-team for an example.

Scanner - "Here, have some delicious free cake, but don't share it with that weasel Johnny"

Leech - "Ooooo, thanks"

Leech - "Hey! did you poop on this?!"

Scanner - "Yup, somebodies been sharing with Johnny, so I've been pooping on each piece in case Johnny gets his hands on it.

Leech - "You dick, you promised me free cake, but you pooped on it"

Scanner - "Sigh, there's just no gratitude. I worked hard to bake that cake, the original ingredients were delicious, leeches like you get something for nothing and then all you do is complain."

Leech - "But you smothered it in feces, why should I thank you?"

Scanner - "You shared with Johnny, until he's gone I'm pooping on all the cake"

Leech - "But I never shared..."

Scanner - "You're all the same, ungrateful wretches. Stop Johnny and I won't poop on cake anymore"

Leech - "You can keep your bloody cake, you @$+#!"

Leech - "That scan guy's a jerk, he's promising free cake, but befouling it before he serves it to you"

Sycophant - "you have no right to complain about what the scanlators give you FOR FREE."

Stop lying!
First you are a monster! second a derp! third there be no masses who says that, only a chosen few!

Still every scanlator knows there's two kinds of people: readers and leechers. Readers read stuff and say thanks once a blue moon. Leechers reads stuff and complain or troll since it's their "right" to get the next chapter watermark free.

And still you don't get the message they are trying to send...or not doing anything about what they are saying even if you see their problem. The problem of a group who would gladly give you more and more manga/manwha if you supported them the right way....sigh...maybe you deserve it?

oh I agree...but Johnny was still earning money on the cake by selling it to Africans instead of giving it out free. Now he can't get rich biggrin

Plus if you don't like free cakes with poops no one is telling you to come back and whine about it or for that sake keep coming back and complaining about it because no one else is making the same cake. It doesn't mean that the poop goes away, it only means that there will be smellier poops on the cake the more you complain instead of doing something about Johnny.

No wrong. The other site was what really started the watermarks since the request to delay a few days or to not put up titles were totally ignored. The acted like they did it on mangafox while they put it up on mangahere instead.

Please get your facts right before you argument...ignorance is shown very quick when talking to knowledgeable people.

Other less obnoxious ways to fight NOEZ include just putting a note in the credits page, supporting a site like Batoto, or having your own reader with series you do on your own site. These may not seem like much, but hey, it's not like watermarks have accomplished anything other than making a bunch of people mad.
