Yes, but not too badly. Since MU stopped showing website URLs, I've been using Batoto as my primary go-to for updates and MU as a supplement. Looks like I'll have to switch back to primarily MU and downloading again, but that's a manageable adjustment. (Also gives me incentive to drop a lot more manga that I'm "meh" about instead of stubbornly trying to read them to completion.)

Hopefully, another reader that respects scanlators' wishes will spring up in Batoto's place soon, but as long as MU is around, nothing will ever really affect my manga reading habits too badly.

Quote from im_uni
Usually I don't trust on-line sources, precisely for this reason - because they can close down.

Exactly. Has it been several years already since a notable online reader like Batoto closed down? After several online readers closed down prior to the existence of Batoto I switched to following on MU.
