Agreed, Qidian behaves like shit. But pirate aggregator sites are even shittier. In the end, Qidian can only steal novels that were published on the chinese Qidian. But pirate sites steal everything. When you use a pirate site to read a Qidian novel, you won't just be harming Qidian, you'll be harming every translator cos you help make the pirate site popular, which then help it attract more readers. And these readers may end up reading every novel on that site, not just the Qidian novels. If you want to 'protest' against Qidian by not reading on its site, then you can either not read at all, or use MTL. Using pirate sites is the stupid way, as you'll end up damaging the entire community.
