Hypocrisy only applies if one pretends to be morally superior or follow moral standards they do not. Calling someone out for being a hypocrite for doing X, while said person is chastising others for doing X, which does include the person doing the calling out, does not make the person doing the calling out a hypocrite; Thief A calling Thief B a thief isn't hypocrisy. Thief B saying stealing is wrong is hypocrisy. Thief A calling Thief B a hypocrite isn't hypocrisy. The person doing the calling out isn't saying X is wrong, but being a hypocrite is wrong, and virtue signalling, for lack of a better term, is wrong. That greed as a motivator, and the arrogance to lay claim to something you don't own is wrong.

Your entire argument sophistry. You're incorrectly labeling him and the other users hypocrites, and you're using a generic appeal to hypocrisy, which is doubly incorrect since nothing he said is hypocritical. I think he's wrong in saying your arguing on bad faith, or at least implying it. You just don't know whats going on. I also don't think, rather know, considering your usage of the word, you know what the definition of the word hypocrite.

@uniquerandomusername my comment was about hypocrisy too tho so was it not in topic, or is that you just read the first part?, I said we all are being hypocrites when trying to take moral a stance on a inherently immoral situation so not really sucking up to anyone.
Go back, I didn't refute anything of what you said, did I? Instead I started with a "at the same time" meaning there are two side's here, both rest on the premise of something being wrong, it's wrong to ask for money when you own nothing about the thing you're aming to receive money from, also even if you aren't asking for money the distribution of something you don't own whitout permission is wrong, there is lesser evil here but at the end they are two are evils
But of course I'm just arguing on bad faith cuz it's easier to just dismiss and argument rather than pondering on its content

Not sure if you didn't understand my post or just a sucking up to scanlators, but let's pretend for a second that you're not just arguing in bad faith.

My post is not about piracy. Arguing about piracy on a site like this it completely and utterly pointless. The post is about the hypocrisy of trying to justify your piracy by saying you're helping spread the work and bring in more sales and all that shit while begging for donations on patreon to buy raws.
These people don't give two shits about the original artist getting more attention or money. They only really care about the attention and money they get from themselves which is why there is such a massive drama whenever something somewhat popular is 'sniped'.

@uniquerandomusername at the same time tho, imagine pointing out something illegal while you yourself are doing illegal shit. And no the fact that is less illegal than getting money doesn't make it better, scanlation isn't in a legal grey area as some want to believe so I don't really get this whole thing
In reality WE are being assholes and breaking the law and even if some pretend to have ethic the sole fact of us being part of this thing is wrong which robs us of the chance to act righteous without coming of as hypocrites that lack awareness of our actions

Lmao exactly my thought, sir. These entitled people, smh. Snipe all you want, who the fuck cares. We're all free readers, don't actually care if it's whose grandmother doing these upload or translate.

Imagine actually thinking you have any type of ownership over something just because you pirate it and then share your translation of it with other people.
Imagine begging for money to buy raws, that cost less than $10, of something that you supposedly enjoy yourself.
Imagine actually defending the actions of someone that does all that.

The funniest thing about all of this is that the ONLY reason groups ever get mad about 'sniping' is because they lose donation money when someone else starts TLing faster than them.
These are the people who justify piracy by saying they are helping to spread the work to western fans while being so fucking cheap that they will not even buy raws with their own money

@monkeyvoodoo Point out something I'm unhappy about and you'll be happy to correct it. I'm unhappy that you sniped a series that was already being done well. Begging for donations triggers you? There are hundreds of groups who do this. This is a hobby. Not everyone has the expendable income to do this for free, even if you can get it cheap. Instead of actually picking up a series that had been dropped or needed to be translated, you shoved your way in with an inferior quality product while slapping on shitposting about another group.

You want to make me happy? You want to correct this situation? Stop sniping shit and get the original scanlators to come back. I don't care what the fuck annoys you, YOU annoy me by being assholes.

@Xystus I think the group that translated those chapters got pissed because of this snipe and took everything of this site

What's going on? How come the chapters before were removed? Also dejavu but haven't I read this chapter previously? lol

@Daktyl point out something you're unhappy with and we'll be happy to correct it!

@krispy sure, there's really no way around saying that we sniped this series. but there's a lot more to answer with your question than can really be addressed here in a quick comment. this could have been any series; we've been annoyed by donation-begging groups for a long time. ultimately, this came down to a weird coincidence of timing, and interest in a particular series. there was no particular effort in singling out a series or group.

Damn dude, if you're going to snipe a series fine, but at least learn to clean properly.

@HYBRID_BEING our policy for signs and onomatopoeia is simply just to leave them be. the only times we translate those are when it's relevant to the plot (i.e. without it being translated, the reader would be left confused). specifically for onomatopoeia, japanese has what amounts to an entire language. while it's possible to translate these (to a degree), often there's no direct translation, so you end up with some weird string of kana, with some form of somewhat-relevant english slapped on top of it. usually, the original japanese onomatopoeia serves its own purpose without translation: e.g. you can see something happening in the panel, and there's japanese fx text that you don't need a translation for to understand, contextually.

i think the blank spots you're referring to were cleaned by the staff cleaning the chapter, but weren't addressed by the translator, partially for the reasons i stated above, and partially to get the chapter out as quick as possible. i don't think it's a matter of being unable to translate. onomatopoeia in japanese is just particularly complex, often so much so that a native speaker would, rather than try to translate, just tell you "it's just a noise that means XYZ".

@monkeyvoodoo real serious when im asking this no troll intended...did u snipe this series?
Avatar
@monkeyvoodoo
On page page 7-8 Hatigarm typesetted some of the signs, and painted two white (couldn't translate?), but you didn't. Do you not plan to typeset as meticulously as they did?
