Gah! This is Just Plain Ridiculous!

current mood: furious

Just discovered a link to "nico_sensei's" translations for vol 1 of HakuYou. And now, before I do anything rash or anything else for that matter, I'm going to go take a nice long shower. (Yes at 3PM.)

Hopefully. >.<; I've put in an support request - abuse. From the options, as near as I can tell this goes under a DMCA complaint against the user in question. Ugh on the all officious aspect, but with or without the formal language, it's the same thing.

Fingers crossed! Hopefully LJ at least replies in a timely manner.

A little over an hour for response time. I'm impressed! ^_^

I never understood WHY people would be so rude and disrespectful as to try to take credit for someone's hard work.

LJ would probably do something if you asked them to, not sure how well it would work, but they are pretty good about things like that. They will probably tell you to friends-lock your journal or posts.

Hope the shower made you feel a little better at least! ^_^

Well, it's always possible that someone else posted a link to the journal without their knowledge, but I found their reply to a comment as just plain strange - more in line with pretending it was their work. Personally, I find it unfathomable why someone would steal novel translations period. Manga translations, I might not like it, but I can easily see people stealing them to make scanlations. It'd be very tempting since so much of the work is already done. But stealing novel translations (or fics)... it annoys the translator (writer) and is going to do more harm in the long run. Of course, if the intent is to get the translator to quit, I suppose it might be effective, but... >.>

I've put in a complaint to LJ, so we'll see how that goes. I really hate having to do that sort of thing (especially since we're talking about fan translations here), but really. It shouldn't happen in the first place either. I can understand about f-locking and it does make sense, but... It's not entirely fair to people who get into things later. :/

The shower and 2 hours of playing Chicken Invaders - Revenge of the Yolk definitely helped. I'd forgotten how silly that game was. :P

I hope LJ yanks it. >.< They really do seem to be good about that--once someone plagiarized part of my website for the user info for a role-playing journal, of all things, and LJ dealt with it appropriately.

This really sucks. :/ I'm sorry this keeps happening to you.

Good to know that they're good about responding to this sort of thing. ^_^ From the form submission, it sounds like I should get some sort of response which is nice. (Although they do say it may take time.)

Hopefully this will be the last of it for a long long while. >.<; (And hopefully I won't get swatted for originally posting that sort of material. ^^; )

I see above that you got a response quickly! I hope they take action quickly too.
