I ran into a problem where I thought I was being helpful by attributing saiyman to a file with no group listed, but it turns out that SM file was the same as a file found on, and my creq was denied. So, I took a closer look at saiyman's website, and it seems that they are redistributing winny files on their bittorrent page. They leave the original Japanese filename intact, and they do not insert the S^M tag into the name, so they are not doing anything evil. This is confusing, and I see that many of these redistributed files are incorrectly attributed to SM on anidb.

Would it be helpful to hunt down some of these files and creq them to "no group", or is it no big deal to just leave them be?

be my guest to do that. the whole saiyaman situation has evolved to a paoint where i would just love to press the delete button on saiyamans group page, which would be wrong, but ... >_>

for the interested reader the whole situation is documented here:

Thanks! I think I'll just fix my own bad entries. The whole raw issue is indeed a mess! :?
