I’ve been posting free translations on the internet since 2005, with a much larger readership back when I also did English to Chinese, and this is really the first time this sort of thing has ever happened. Maybe it’s not about “big money”, but they’re certainly attracted to the idea of it. I’m aware removing anything won’t do me any good at this point. Readers have been linking my stuff long before Novel Updates and the scene around it existed, and it never occurred to me this might end up encouraging theft, since everything was already free and easily accessible. Idk how to make aggregators any more unnecessary. I know how much traffic my stuff actually gets. They’re all wasting their time, which is why I found the situation downright surreal. Anyhow, thanks for all the tips & advice.
