An even more glaring example than the last one, where it was a question of the actual publishing being on hiatus, I won't touch a title that has any
kind of scanlations problem with a ten-foot pole anymore.
Again, literally hundreds
of this type of title on my lists already......ones I've read a portion of and, most likely, will never
get to read the end of.........yeah, I'd have to have a hole in my head to knowingly read even a single chapter of one more that could turn out the same way.

Huh, more people would read it. That actually surprised me
Quote from MinatoAce
As for me, it doesn't surprise me at all. I kinda saw that coming.
Yes, it surprises me a little, but not a lot. It's not exactly a huge gap to begin with, and I think as much as anything the majority is simply reflecting how much turnover we have in our hobby.......as in there are just more people (as a percentage of the whole) who are newer to all this and don't yet realize just how volatile fan scanlations can be. Yes, this question was about manga on an official hiatus, but a lot of new readers don't realize just how great a chance there is (except in the smallest
percentage of very popular titles) that there will be real problems/a great likelihood that things aren't going to turn out well, either because of publishing or scanlating.
Of course it could just be that I'm more cynical than most, that's possible too
