    Of course what I can't help but wonder is how many times that same trick's been pulled before and how many groups just folded without checking it out. Either way I always enjoy seeing a little anti-Tazmo sentiment ever since those days back when he hosted Inane's scanlations without permission, refused to take them down when asked and removed their anti-Tazmo watermarks.

    I've had a normal account on NarutoFan for years now but I never really did anything on there short of downloaded the free manga every week. I currently administer at two forum communities and am being begged to go back to a number of others, but unfortunately I lack the time, so I probably won't even get active here. The only two reasons I joined though is first and foremost to say thank you for all your hard translation work. I for one appreciate all your efforts greatly and am more than happy to say so. Sincerely, thank you.

    Secondly, I just want to say props up for standing up to Tazmo like that. Personally, I don't know the guy, I've never met him, never talked to him and to me he's the same as pretty much any other stranger and I have no intention of bashing him or supporting him either way, though I do believe what he's doing is despicable. Having over ten years of moderating and administering forum communities and working on all sorts of projects... many of which turned sour, I see a lot of myself in what you did just then. I never did stand for being used and abused by people on some sort of a power trip or watching such things happen to other so I repetitively did things similar in nature. I understand all too well what risks such decisions carry and have felt their full effects and fury on a number of occasions, but I made them without hesitation and would do so again. Let's just say I respect you having the balls to up and do what you felt was right, even when you knew you were heading right into the noose. Good on you man. Keep up the amazing work you've been doing thus far and I for one will keep coming here first for all the Bleach and Naruto manga.

I'm a little suprised that, even after contacting Viz and telling them about the letter and your website, they didn't send you a C+D order. Remember that page that you were putting in your manga, about Narutofan and Tazmo? You can add another website to that list, www.stoptazmo.com. Tons of manga, and they pretty much all despise Tazmo over there. Funny threads can be found about Tazmo conspiracies, too.
    I emailed this to him myself after his page at the end of his scans a couple weeks ago. That site has a great archive of so many mangas.

    Lol, blud, wow! That letter was really nicely worded.

    Well, most likely it WAS a real C&D letter, with substituted website & added or subtracted manga series

    Although, I wonder why the logo is pixelized >_> Is it just me, or does your scanner suck? XD

    My scanner is very ghetto, I've had it since like 2001 and it was cheap back then too

    Also, it was a real C+D letter. People have scans of them floating around the internet, Tazmo found one or took one that was sent to him, and re-worded it.

    Is there any real evidence it was Tazmo though?

    I know he's an idiot - But is he really up for visiting you? I allways imagined him the kind of person who would keep it to online trickery...

    I'm guessing I'll be the first one to get a C&D if they change their legal focus to scanlations though.


    lol, obviously fake but anyways...
