    I don't give a shit that he did it, but that he nearly right out lied about it. Sure, he used wording which was incredibly ambiguous, but he knew the meaning of the question. Call it what you want, that's lying right into the face of the community. His lost any credibility he had.

    He should've just released this information with the previous announcement. Also, from Qidian's trackrecord so far, how long until they screw him over ? I'd say a couple months.

    Money? Yeah, money always talks, like it or not, money makes the world go round. Though he said the majority of this money didn't go to him, but to the translators. *shrugs*

    And well, he got the best deal he could get for the best for Gravity, I think that is good enough for him.

    Profit from GT will give money to Qi? So what? Qi is already rich, what difference does the amount GT gives make? Nothing. It won't make a significant difference.

    Qi promises may mean nothing, but Qi's contract means, and that's what matters. He got a contract to guarantee the things he needs.

    At least the attitude shown by GGP shows he'll fit right in with the rest of the snakes over at Qidian.

    Well this was a legit buisness move from my point of view.
    Tho the reason most people are mad were the lies.

    And the fact that in the BTTH release in WW he is (still) posting links to GT (now owned by QI) is the cherry on the cake.

    QI contract matters? Sorry, where have you been in the last couple of months?

    I know you don't care and won't care no matter what I say, and of course won't see anything even a tiny bit the same way as I do. So for the rest... I will just go with this :facepalm:

    On NUF, laughing at all this drama~
    Well, I really don't care though, I just like providing a PoV from someone that doesn't care about the entire matter, since I think I can be more objective than most people like this.

    Oh well. *shrugs*

    It was pretty evident from the very start that GGP was working to satisfy his own greed instead of doing it for community or GT.

    His greed was first evident when how high he charged for Patreon goals and donations with the slow release rate for BTTH (he was looting people if you compare it with other translators). But that guy has the nerves to say that Patreon was never for money...he only did it for having a place where readers can discuss. See? He has always been a guy who likes being called a hero even when he is doing the looting.

    And now...QI. Man, have the guts to say you want to satisfy your greed. Everyone who has donated you in the past or followed you have some idea...

    It's not wrong to become rich. Everyone wants to be. But don't speak a white lie...don't claim to be a Saint when you have done what you have done. Being a devil is fine but at least say it. Please no hypocrisy.

    From what we've seen with WW vs QI, not really. They'll find some ambiguous wording in the contract and twist it however they want. If that doesn't work, they'll drag it to court for a couple years until the other party gives up.

    Well, it's why you need to hire a lawyer to look at the contract for you when you're a company dealing with another company...

    But yeah, I can imagine Qidian changing their position if they deem necessary... Which I don't think will happen, considering that they already hold a good chunk of GT's shares, it's unlikely they need to make any other move to exploit GT more.
