The sooner groups like this go down, the sooner that the ethical scanlators can take back the stage, and go back to their original purpose...namely

b) Training up the next generation of manga translators. There's more than a few translators from fansub and scanlation circles who have since "gone legit". For instance....apparently Strato of a.f.k., who famously subbed Haruhi, went on to do the official translation of its light novels.
