    OP is truly foolish.

    Translator is obliged to translate because someone donates? You are truly stupid.

    A donation acts as an INCENTIVE to encourage the translator to translate at a faster rate, basically its a way to say thanks for his/her effort.

    I have never heard of a donation wherein the one donating is expecting something in return (unless the donated promised to do so).

    And let me ask you: Have you even donated to the translator or to any TLer? If yes perhaps you may have the right to whine but not to complain.

    If no, then you don't even have the right to whine or jud the TLer's decisions because he/she is giving you a FREE SERVICE.

    And why the hell do you like PMG anyways?

    Though the "fuck you picture" was inappropriate, but you have to admit that she did a fine job on her past deliveries of sponsored chapters wherein others are limited to 1~3 sponsored chapters. I mean, there are only a handful of people who can dish out multiple chapters if the queue is huge. So I guess the good things and the bad things cancel out each other? :p

    I just said the way totallyinsane handled was inappropriate. Consider this situation, you pay 40$ for a meal and the restaurant makes you wait 2 hours for a meal. Any person would complain in this situation.When you start labeling as say '40$ a chapter' it becomes a service and no longer just "Encouragement". This is my personal opinion.

    She was my favourite translator for a long time. I don't say she's sucks or anything, I just said the way she handled it was inappropriate.

    Well, if you can still stay sane while you are having migraines PLUS complaints from the comments, I applaud you sir. I, for one, cannot.

    This is quite funny. It doesn't happen often that donators asking for a status update are being hated. Might be the power of a female's virtual pheromones.

    You sure sound self-centered. So, are you expecting a translator to continue translating for hours after the translator has made an update about her body condition.

    I don't expect her to translate.... I expect her to not tell me "Fuck you". It was just inappropriate.

    i dont think that logic is sound, there is very little difference (gray area shit) between "donating" for something extra and "paying" for something extra, if there is any at all

    It's not like you have to interpret it as her telling you "fuck you" when it's directed to the people who made pointless comments. Unless, you're one of them for you to be affected this much? o_O

    Well I just went and looked at the comments when I saw this thread. I was a bit dumbfounded. First time I see someone who "gave" money being called selfish and given the "translate ur own novel", "go google trad", "u complain but do nothing for the community" rebukes. That's hilarious.

    If someone gave me $500 to "encourage me" (LOL), I'd be quite eager to give him an explanation as soon as he asks me why I've been inactive. This is going against common sense. I'd be quite surprised if those people who donated actually donate again in the future. In this case, it's not those donators who will be on the losing end.
