No comment about Moogy here since I haven't actually seen any of his work!

Of course I do love quality translations.

A sentient dictionary which values reproducing the original “Japanese” “sentence structure” above all else, including actually coming up with an accurate translation. So I guess that makes Agilis the living embodiment of fucking EDICT or something. Maybe in his next life he’ll get to be Yahoo Jisho. Honestly I could discuss how fucking bad this translation is for ages but it just pisses me off so let’s stop here.

Anyway, back to the main topic. Come fucking on, the name of the fucking site is proper-permission.org. That alone does far more to ridicule this misguided, should-have-been-an-abortion of an idea than I ever could. What the fuck kind of permission isn’t “proper” anyway? Like if I fucking hold up some bastard on the street and I’m like let me translate your fucking shit or you’re getting a bullet right to the fucking head and he agrees out of desperation would that be considered “improper” permission? Like come on guys define your fucking term here if you’re so in love with it that you named your damn site after it.

In all fairness Moogy's blog is mostly written in this kind of style - check out the post just before that one. I don't think he was being entirely serious!

On the other hand, it is kind of fun to imagine Moogy with steam pouring out of his ears in anger over seeing the name of a collaborative translation project.

Oh, the unwarranted self importance! You aren't so important there aren't gangs of people waiting to get you. People just wish you would stop acting like a child and insulting people you consider yourself better than (everyone).

He didn't used to be like this if you look at the earlier blog posts, his ego has just grown huge since then. I don't care if he's trying to be funny, he shouldn't call someone else's hard work they did for free "a horrible piece of bullshit".

He needs to take his huge ego down a few pegs and stop acting so immaturely.

This thread is indicative of the sad state of this so-called "scene."

We have self-important pompous "translators" who apparently think they are engaged in some kind of sophisticated intellectual endeavor. We have fanboys who somehow think they have a right to pirate material. These same fanboys then rage when the Japanese companies actually exert their rights and prevent their work from being tampered with as if these fanboys had any right to access this material in the first place. We have the commercial translation companies peddling their mediocre products.

Truly pathetic.

Its like reading a gossip magazine full of bullshit gossip!

From this:

An important question. Why do you sacrifice 1-2 years of your free time to bring projects to fruition? I would like to believe that most people do it because they love the visual novels so much, but I suspect that the real reasons are quite different.

To this

"OMFG BULLSHIT TRANSLATION"

Isn't following someone the whole idea of twitter?

I think fujifruit is right. The question was simply "Why do you translate for free?". All the other stuff is useless and off topic here.
If you want to scream out to each other, I guess it'd better if you did it opening a different thread.
You can't say "go out" to someone who was only saying "this is not the right topic for this".
Isn't there any rule in these forums?
