The hate is because of their blatant disregard for the fansubbers, which shows not respect. While groups have protested against streaming on youtube, veoh, crunchroll, mysoju, etc, I haven't really known them to put a line in especially for ONE site. That they did and DC STILL posted it shows a blatant disregard for the fansubber who created the subs.

If you like the drama and you enjoyed the fansubs, I suggest you stop going to DC and download it instead. That's the least you can do to show your appreciation and understanding that a lot of time and effort was put into subbing this drama: by respecting that the fansubber never wanted it to be streamed, and especially not on DC.

Please tell me you aren't serious when asking why I put that message there...

Next time I will add a moving text for whole duration of the drama. 'Cause I can.

how about one that moves not only sideways, but also bounces up and down, too? XD

Sure, it'll obstruct the people's faces every odd second, but with pixelated streaming these days, it wouldn't make a difference, right? XD

.....no, but seriously, moving text throughout the duration of an episode doesn't sound too bad. I'm all for it. :-)

Oh, I so think you should! It would be interesting to see what would happen (if anything) and so funny to have DC (and others) with vids blasting them running throughout. :lol

I cannot believe you are on their side with this.
They are breaking one of the most important fansubbing rules. They ignore everyone's messages and even though they know they shouldn't be streaming these files they just don't care.

And actually they are streaming copyrighted material which is illegal and they are making money through ads from people like you.
Is that not enough?

Was it really necessary to make a thread about this, when you can get all the answers to your question in another thread in which you already posted?!

Well, obviously this is the main viewership of DC.

Let suckers be suckers then.

Yes, it's me :wub:


And indeed there seems to be no need for this topic if the OP has already participated in the other thread. The reasons why everyone is so annoyed are more than clear.

Sad to see this threads take attention from the more productive petition thread. nad067, your obviously someone who does not give a **** about the feelings of the very people that sub the dramas you enjoy. Its because of lazy, indifferent people like you that, one day, many Fansubbers will quit Fansubbing.

Maybe we should add some hard core porn at various spots in the episodes. I can get a hold of some good Kishi Aino material - the likes of Dailymotion and Veoh would enjoy that content.

Good one, groink!!! That would be hilarious!

Yeah, that sounds like a great Idea. I'll just replace the ending of each Quiz Show 2 with hard core Coat West gay porn.

Hmm... I've got a pron file someone sent me a long time ago starring a Han Ga-In lookalike. I'd bet that would really spice up those Terms of Endearment uploads.......

...Hun, it is illegal. It is, it just is, accept it.
And no, they are not doing a good job. The videos look like crap and they did it all without a fansubber's permission.

Oh, I agree on messing up the videos. XD That'd be hilarious!

Can this random thread be locked, seriously? The poster just didn't want to read the old one.

What's wrong with streaming sites? Answer: Everything.

(I already restrained myself from posting in the other thread but... If more threads like these keep popping up then :argue: )

I think the OP's question is legitimate. From a viewer's POV, some still prefer to watch from streaming sites because you can watch it at once without having to store the file on your pc. Not everyone has the patience to download a torrent and not everyone is that particular about quality. I prefer quality though.

So what's wrong with streaming sites?

Let's maybe not talk about the illegality issue. It'll only explode back in our faces. :o)

The biggest reason, I believe, is because streaming sites give fansubbers too much exposure that it puts them under the radar of the broadcasting networks and that spells big trouble for everyone.

You notice that streaming sites always have disclaimers like, they use outside sources and such. So when the broadcasters find their shows there, all the site has to do is take them down. On the other hand, the source of the file may get pounced on more directly.

If the fan-subber gets in trouble, no more subbed dramas for us. If the streaming sites want to share these shows so badly because they earn from them, they should do their own subbing work and share them at their own risk as was suggested earlier on.

In fairness though, I discovered D-addicts through crunchyroll.com. I wonder how many of us were actually led toward "torrenting" through these streaming sites. Just a thought. I guess it can really get logically complicated.
