So the anti-theft message worked very well, with some pirates cutting off the chapter after the message. LOL. Brought a small to my face, and that’s why you should always go to the source folks, to make sure you got the full content! I couldn’t turn it invisible because some pirates filter out code like that, and WP automatically parsed the : ) into a 🙂 .
Left another one today because of a reader on one of the pirate sites started defending their decision to support piracy, and DMCA requests only work if the servers are in the US — which most pirates are smart enough not to.
I also put the message at the end this time so as to not break “immersion”, hopefully that’s better. That reader actually responded to my message and said he’s just too lazy to read on the actual sites. Welp. *shrug* I know the translator sites may have broken functions (glares at our own dark mode plugin) and the occasional bad ad that slips in, but it’s so critical to content creators that we support the real deal. Particularly when it’s free to do so!
I never really fully appreciated that concept until I was on this side of the fence. This is literally how I (and a lot of artists, actors, writers, etc) put food on the table and pay rent. But meh, enough about my soapbox. If you’re reading this, thank you for your support! <3 <3
