>All that deleted content re-emerging.
Did someone at sadpanda had a fucking panic attack? Everyone is worrying over fucking nothing.
Even if you were right, it's a clear indication that you can't trust online services to provide content forever.
Never put full trust in a service to always provide content, make local backups.
Look at the dates, people are reuploading.
That said, I'm itching to hurt that kike asshole Jacob really badly. Lets start by ruining his reputation. If I can get angry moms to march against this scum then his shit will get shut down before it even has a chance to start up.
Can't we just have a normal panda thread like we used to be, despite the catastrophe?
Something like this was bound to happen one day.
It's why I've been archiving the stuff I like on my own server for a while now.
People always say archiving things is stupid, but I bet those are the same people who pissed themselves over all the stuff that was lost when MU was taken down or now with Sadpanda. Things don't live on the internet forever.
Fortunately, the stuff on ex is easily available from other sources, so it's not really that big of a problem.
We need some recovery and complaining first.
And some of those "Remember when x happened" even though it only happened recently.
Haven't you been in a internet crisis before?
A lot of the stuff people liked and would want to share is good now. The value of sadpanda as an all-in-one fap source has been drastically reduced.
It may be good in a way. The frequency at which I have been fapping can't have been healthy. Maybe this will kill the habit a bit.
It seems like most people started to archive everything they could get their hands on, now. It probably means that stuff like this won't have as big of an impact, as it did this this time.
Then so be it, this must not be allowed to repeat itself. Through obscurity, security. Apparently you all have forgotten to keep your fucking heads down after the 2010 disaster.
The panda will live, but Fakku can't take this kind of negative publicity, nor can its founders as private persons afford to have their skeletons pulled out of their closets.
This is why you don't have "general" threads and how-to guides about your "secret" club.
Hopefully you learn, and someone will create a site that is actually secure and doesn't attract a plethora of retards who wish to make reddit-tier generals about it.
So what's the fastest way of getting credits/hath? I've all but depleted my credits because I really never played the damn game that much.
I would do bounties, but I feel like my moonspeak is much to be desired from and I'd have to brush up some more on that before trying.
>I believe whatever my jewish overlord says even though he directly benefits from panda going down.
I bet you also believe the Daiz crusade against TT a few weeks back was for "noble reasons".
I swear to god there is no end to the naivete of some idiots.
donations or uploading stuff that gets a lot of hits
>was gonna donate the minimum years ago
>either that same week or month he stopped paypal donations and started only taking bitcoins
>didn't want to bother anymore
I'd have been loaded at this point and have posted a ton of bounties if I pulled the trigger sooner
>I bet you also believe the Daiz crusade against TT a few weeks back was for "noble reasons".
It's absolutely baffling that some people think it's a good thing that fansubbers are now limiting themselves to one tracker.
Yeah, that's smart, because there's no chance of the Nyaa tracker ever going down, just like there's no chance of Exhentai removing content or MU being taken down.
I mean, it's not like the Nyaa tracker has ever been taken down before...
He's to blame. He urged the jew on to forge an alliance with Satan. After this his word is worth shit, he's a goddamm liar, an opportunist and a fraud.
It's time to wake up and smell coffee, /a/. Daiz has long since outlived his usefulness and all he does now is just cause more grief than he's worth.
So? Put it back up again.
They'll take it down then you'll put at back up then they'll take it down again then you'll put it back up again. It's just a fucking cycle that nobody wins in the end.
First mangatrader and now this. The walls are closing in boys. Break out the violins, ships going down, and I want to go down with it with you fine gentlemen doing what we've always done.
No one's going fucking down here, this is war.
He wants to sell out and pander to reddit normies? Fucking fine, lets see what his neighbours and co-workers have to say about his deviant hobbies.
The slope is slippery though. First its wani waving its dick around. But what happens when Comic-Lo or Girls for M gets taken down because some sweaty japanese comic artists finally get an ego? What then? What will we fap to? All that will be left is no fap...
Off topic, I feel that there's a severe lack of vanilla exhibition stuff. You know, just normal "This is embarassing!" play. It's always corruption or "I'm a huge slut!" shit that isn't even good. Is there anything decent that's like what I want? Or am I doomed to sluts and whores?
On topic, glad to see SOMETHING happening that isn't pining for the fjords.
>>was gonna donate the minimum years ago
>>either that same week or month he stopped paypal donations and started only taking bitcoins
>>didn't want to bother anymore
Payal does not work because some donators where not able to follow simple instructions and then paypal found out those donations go to some non worksafe site .
I'm here out of curiosity rather than caring about the subject matter, but I think being worried about the implications of what has happened makes sense. It's not so much about what was deleted than it is about how this could happen again, when and if it'll affect other things in the future (anime or manga for instance)
Here's the takedown notice FAKKU originally got back in April along with other sites. Other sites probably got similar letters.
Wani sent takedowns for all of their content hosted on sadpanda and other websites
Jewcob is playing the victim card by saying "WE WERE SENT TAKEDOWNS TOO!!!". What he isn't emphasizing is that he struck exclusive deal with Wani to publish some of their content in the US. The fire has only slightly risen, this is only the beginning, soon Jacob himself will be sending takedowns for all of the content he's selling, the content he'll have is just decensored shit which already exists and he'll also be selling everything for absurd prices. Don't believe his lies.
>Jewcob is playing the victim card by saying "WE WERE SENT TAKEDOWNS TOO!!!"
They were, see >>111120848
>What he isn't emphasizing is that he struck exclusive deal with Wani to publish some of their content in the US.
Actually it's a worldwide license. And it covers everything Wani has ever released and will release.
There are so many scanlators that following all of them is an impossible task. Several don't even have release sites and put all there stuff directly on EH.
It's not like regular manga where you can follow the one scanlator for the entire run of a series.
Wani Magazine has no right to policy all the works of an artist. Perhaps it was worded badly, or it was intentional fear mongering.
Either way the only things he had to remove were eromanga provided by of wani's magazines.
Outside of that they have no power.
Well, I guess that one thing we all gained from this is knowing that the things we take for granted can be gone at a moment's notice. I think that now more anons are going to be creating and maintaining their own archives so that if this event ever does happen again, we'll be better prepared for it.
Scanlator sites aren't exactly illegal, Wani can only send DMCAs to the server owners who host the illegal content. Scanlator sites typically only link to the exhentai gallery URL and standard file storage websites (MEGA, depositfiles, etc.).
Did anybody save Imouto Cupid or whatever it was called. It was all I failed to save.
Holy shit, /a/ is fucking stupid.
Why do retards fall for all the shilling these FAKKU fags do? Literally every other post is shilling for Jacob and his crew of fuckups.
Jacob should just kill himself silently and kill his shitty crew with him.
>trusting the jews
This is the final product of actually believing Jacob and his shills.
At least I have everything archived, so go, give all your shekels to the Jew Leader, Jacob.
There's a precedent for the linking thing regardless of whether or not they are actually hosting it. IIRC, mangaupdates got shit on for having links and were forced to have them removed. For those not savvy enough, links to certain blogs, channels, etc. do not show up on mangaupdates anymore.
Even so he could've bitten the bullet and taken it like a man. Instead he stabbed an old ally in the back and sold his dog to the Chinese.
I am really fucking pissed and I'm considering uploading a bunch of galleries just to get the message across that people should boycott Jacob.
No wait, that's a wonderful idea! Gallery owners, we should all band together and put Fakku unfriendly messages in the descriptions of our galleries. Fakku shares a lot of the same userbase as the panda.
We force the message across and encourage a boycott of their services. It might just work.
Wani is no different than ISP scare tactics. They play on fear and paranoia and in the end, we're the ones shooting ourselves in the foot. Wani is just sitting back and watching the destruction unfold without lifting a finger.
But the takedowns were a result of Wani's actions, not FAKKU's. And as >>111120848 shows, they were sending out pretty comprehensive takedown notices even before the whole FAKKU deal came about. And while FAKKU actually removed stuff, sadpanda just hid it.
>No wait, that's a wonderful idea! Gallery owners, we should all band together and put Fakku unfriendly messages in the descriptions of our galleries. Fakku shares a lot of the same userbase as the panda
We don't need to do that. Anyone who uses sadpanda hates Fakku already at this point.
5 posts from 137 which are ironically in support of FAKKU to be idiots or troll people. Wow, you sure convinced me that all of /a/ is shilling for Jacob and is on Jacob's side.
They needed a way to get into the panda and I highly doubt that they got in by their lonesomes.
There's a reason why tenboro is removing the galleries and not just taking them off the surface layer.
They could literally ignore the DMCA, and if Wani actually tries to take them into court accuse them of IP fraud on the grounds that they don't own the rights to "all works by X artists".
Trying to compromise or make a back and forth is a waste of time, let them be destroyed by their own fraudulent DMCA.
>COMIC Kairakuten 2014-08
>no Naruko Hanaharu
I-it's okay, next month he'll have something, right?
Yes, because with the majority of Sadpanda users being Japanese, there is no japanese person who could possibly have known about the layers and either sent a letter or mentioned it in the wrong public place.
Core has turned shit anyway. They are doing full censorship on everything.
Maybe that's why they are doing it. To prevent people from finding out how crappy their manga are these days.
I used to buy like two or three hentai tanks a month. That has gone down to zero this year.
These galleries are still gone. Though I guessed that they may have just been re-uploaded as new galleries.
But then I searched for kairakute femdom, and page 2 says "Showing 26-50 of 117" even though the only entry shown is Napata's Nanako san, and page 3 and 4 and so on also shows less than they should.
>tfw if you faggots treated sadpanda links like momless links this probably would've never happened
>tfw you guys did this to yourselves
>tfw even if something is done about it you'll just ruin it again because the one thing /a/ can't do is keep their mouths shut
stay classy /a/
>Wani is the first company to do this
Libre, a BL publisher, did this shit years ago.
We do this from now on. Also do not help Japs under any circumstances, these assholes make fun of us on their boards and they're the main reason for this shit.
If you see one you tell that kamikaze motherfucker to piss off back home to 2ch.
Imouto Cupid, right? It's there, anon.
Thoroughly check the thread, brothers, and if all else fails ask a brother to upload it. Everyone gets one.
Wani sends C&Ds demanding to take down these artist's entire collection, IE: everything they've ever made, including the ones Wani does not publish (doujinshi)
Especially fucking Jakob, who gives them money to secure worldwide licensing rights for his shitty website.
See, this is why I told people not to spoonfeed, and told them that telling people how to access sadpanda is a bad idea and they should learn themselves, but everytime I did they would respond with some stupid shit like "exhentai isn't a secret club i can spoonfeed whenever i want and you cant stop me!"
Fucking newfags I swear. The worst part is that even if a sekrit sekrit club is made, you fags would ruin it and spoonfeed and this will start all over again.
Futaba was pretty pissed too since they also browse panda for manga and plus the new laws from early this year and the incoming ones. PD and share still the same and most of the scanlators aren't giving 3 shits about it, though.
Wow Fakku is so shitty
Nothing but fucking cowtits everywhere. It would be like if Sadpanda had nothing but the large breasts tag and even less content than that.
What's with normalfags only liking cowtits?
exhentai hasn't been a secret club in a long time. I agree that people shouldn't spoonfeed newfags, but this hasn't happened because some people on /a/ spoonfed people. These companies would've known about it regardless of what happens on 4chan.
Saying it was normalfags is just a convent way to distance yourself from blame. Everyone who has ever posted a sadpanda link is partially to blame for the rise in popularity of the site which is ultimately the cause for it to be targeted. I swear it's like you're /pol/ and you're just saying normalfags did it instead of Jews.
They do that and they lose their largest demographic, and basically all of their access to raws. (Which is kind of a huge deal because it fucks translators too.)
Blocking JP is the worst thing they could possibly do.
It would be much better to just make a triple secret club that doesn't allow JP IPs, on top of higher requirements than the double secret club.
jacob actually said he isn't scared of proving loli content
if he does have the balls to do it initially, it won't be long until he gets pressured or even forced to remove it by FBI
>The average person can't get into ex
>let alone knows about it
I don't even like loli though unless a loli manga has another fetish I like in it. I like small and medium-small tits.
Yeah, I'm mostly into loli just for the sake of my petite fetish. The only time I've ever gotten uncomfortable fapping to loli was recently when I saw one of the characters in that German VN was based on a real child. At least she was best girl.
When this shit was going down two days ago we had threads across a lot of the site. /b/, /pol/, /a/, /v/, /h/, even the fucking Pokemon board. That's probably what caused so many retards to post in these threads. Plus the average young normalfag has at least heard of 4chan, even if he or she just associates it only with /b/.
If you spend a decent amount of time on the internet, like most people in their teens and twenties (who are a huge part of the internet's users), you will hear about this site. It may not be reddit or facebook tier, but it's definitely well known.
I know you're just bullshitting, and what better thread to do it, but EH gets 20 million unique hits a month, even if you assume everyone is a moron, there would easily be a million people who use Ex.
taking small requests if anyone wants until I fall asleep, just in case I have something that others don't
(can you figure out what my tastes are like from this, I wonder?)

Read the thread, haven't been online in 4 days, big project. I get the gist of what happened, but can someone provide like a timeline of events or something please?
>Wani is the first company to do this
IIRC, there's a scorched earth fiasco a few years back.
The problem is that people need to know about it to upload to it. There are pros and cons to everything and if you keep it hidden then it will never be the glorious amalgamation that ex was.
It all goes to bribing border guards, goyim.
Why, Jakob could go to jail for importing child pornography!
WHY THE FUCK IN 2014 DOES SADPANDA NOT HAVE A STRAIGHT SHOTA TAG
exhentai is being a shit and still wont let me in. Its been three days since I made an account and got the add-on. The log-in screen just refreshes. The cookie tricks worked several months ago, but stopped working recently forcing me to make an account.
Reading all this "muh secret club" shit. Is it tied to this? I just want to fucking fap.
>This content has been disabled due to a DMCA takedown notice, it is no longer available to download or read online in your region.
removed on sadpanda and fakku. well shit
Yes, you're being trolled, though not necessarily intentionally. That $30 is the price for an old physical JP import, and it has pretty much nothing to do with the upcoming FAKKU book releases. Those will be ~$20 for 200+ page physical volumes and $7-9 for digital versions of the same, and likely cheaper for shorter content.
maybe in a month or two or three when I have more downloaded; I have around two thousand more torrents queued
>loli incest english has jumped by 8 pages since yesterday
I don't think there were even 62 pages before the incident
Has the editing the e-hentai cookie thing stopped working for anyone else? I could get in fine less than 24 hours ago, now I'm just getting sadness.
Stop giving me a bunch of maybe's and if's, Daiz.
I'll judge the real prices when we have concrete ones.
But right now, he's selling a bunch of shit at ridiculous prices to fund his vacations in japan as "business expenditures to get manga back to the US of A".
I cannot trust Jacob in any capacity.
Computer illiterate here.
Still works for me.
There's a fucking simpler solution to this non-existent problem you faggots are shitting yourselves on:
Simply put, fucking make an extensive catalog of all doujinshi in existence that only features the title, artist, and the cover page for this niggers that need to see what the art is like. Put no fucking links whatsoever, none, nada, jackshit, etc. The only way this shit can be obtained is through IRC. That's it.
Anyone who has an inkling of what they're fucking doing can go to the site, find what suits their fancy, use the search function in irc, and fucking download away.
I don't know what you niggers are fucking scared about. The only hard part is recovering and rehosting the files in the bots.
What a silly goy. Am I right, Daiz? How much will it be on your service? $10 for a digital copy that will expire after 24 hours and have to be accessed using some account which keeps all your personal details, ready to sell them to advertisers and the government as needed?
Had to go fakku to read one of my favourites.
This site is fucking full of faggotry. It's not even guro or loli or scat or anything
Well crap, must be something wrong on my end. Thanks for the response.
Why the fuck are you fucks even using addons and editing cookies? Are you guys literally retarded or what?
1. Clear your cookies.
2. Login on e-hentai.
3. Don't try to go on ex-hentai yet or else you'll get sad panda.
4. Click on e-hentai's gallery first.
5. Once you're on that page, just type in exhentai.org in your browser.
It's that simple.
>This method is better, you silly goys.
>Only $20 for your porn in digital format and allowing us access to your personal information.
>Much better than getting it for free.
>Aren't you glad we made sure no other site could give this to you without making you pay for it? Hand over those shekels.
How long before Nyaa becomes a paid service, Daiz? Already taken the first step of forcing people off other trackers. Now you just have to setup a paywall.
There we fucking go.
I don't even know what's the problem now. Whoop-de-fucking-doo, a site owned by some ponyfucker's getting his due, and one's true colors has been revealed to be a Jew.
Once again, /a/ shits itself for nothing. At least more people are aware that Jacob is a big piece of shit now. He always has been.
Daiz what if Nyaa becomes the default go-to for scanlated porn manga distribution service?
Would this be good or not?
Because getting Nyaa more power in the scene is the only way you will go against Fakku's promise of quality.
>How long before Nyaa becomes a paid service
>Already taken the first step of forcing people off other trackers
TT isn't a tracker, though. Or even a torrent host. Just an index.
As someone who has access to quite a lot of private servers, I can assure you that Utatane sucks hard for new H-manga (actually when it comes to new stuff it sucks in other areas too) and you're better of relying on the "open" internet. There are some new scans but they usually end up scanned for the public by someone else.
Actually, the majority of new tankoubon get posted on e-hentai first, some of them are scanned by Japanese people though you can't easily tell. I've seen a few people who probably are Japanese post a lot of doujinshi too. PD and Share have like four active scanners in total and with the number of peers decreasing it's harder to download old content. So it's not like Japanese don't give a fuck, in fact in these dark times of p2p becoming dangerous, sites like e-hentai are the place to go for them.
Fuck off you Jew accomplice.
Your word is worth fuck all, your services are unwanted and all you do nowadays is only bring harm to the community.
Get lost and take your shitty delusions of grandeur with you, cue ball.
I didn't buy the shit in the macros being passed around, but now I know better.
You're a goddamm traitor and a sellout.
>3. Don't try to go on ex-hentai yet or else you'll get sad panda.
>4. Click on e-hentai's gallery first.
What the fuck are you talking about? I just login to e-hentai and go to exhentai straight from the profile page.
I learned by figuring it out myself, because I'm not a fucking retard who can't into extremely basic knowledge about how computers work.
Fuck, I used to think this board was populated by people who had at least some semblance of an idea of what they were doing. Not the fucking FaceBook crowd that needs their hands held to do anything more technical than clicking a clearly labelled button to do something.
Sometimes I get sad panda even after logging in. Whatever, probably me fucking up something.
Google answers are retarded. Some literally suggested to download addons.
- Wanimanga, an h-manga publication
- E-hentai, a porn repository known for having a large collection of infringing content (includes Exhentai)
- Tenboro, who runs E-hentai
- Fakku, a porn repository which is aiming to become a legal publisher of porn
- Jacob, who is an admin on Fakku
Earlier this year, both Fakku and E-hentai received removal requests from Wani over scans of Wani publications. Fakku complied, but contacted Wani about translating and publishing their magazine outside Japan. E-hentai hid the infringing content, but didn't remove it.
About a week ago, the deal between Fakku and Wani was finalized. Knowing about E-hentai, Jacob sent an email to Tenboro asking him to "add 'Fakku' and 'Fakku Publications' to the blocklist". Fakku hadn't published anything yet, but they wanted to ensure their eventual translations wouldn't be on E-hentai.
A few days ago, Wani sent out a follow-up removal request to E-hentai. E-hentai's hiding methods are a poorly-kept secret, so it's not unlikely for Wani to have known E-hentai never complied. Tenboro's response was to disable not just every Wani gallery, but all galleries for any artist published in Wani.
Within hours, 4chan was aware that something was amiss. /a/ and /h/ began grabbing things before they were disabled, then calling for people to upload any missing copies. /pol/ looked at Jacob's face and name, then ran wild with the idea that Jacob was a Jew, and thus responsible for everything. Mob mentality kicked in: Jacob was dox'd, bomb threads were made, Twitters were spammed, etc.
Now, Tenboro has realized that he didn't need to take Wani's threats seriously, and is re-enabling the galleries.
>Once again, /a/ shits itself for nothing.
If e.hentai goes down there will be an immense amount of porn that will be lost forever.
I don't have a lot of the raws I've uploaded any more and the original scanned pages are in an inferior condition. I dare say that I'm not the only one in this predicament.
This is what you get for reading your manga online, retards. You do this for anime and non-porn manga, why can't you guys do the same for porn? I honestly can't understand you guys. Ex even has shittarded web gaming, ponyfaggotry, next level sekrit clubbin and quality downgrading via resizing. It's literally worse than fucking Mangafox for some cases.
Why haven't you learn anything about how downloading is always better than streaming your content?
All of this would amount to nothing if you all just got off your asses and worked yourself to death so you can BUY your precious little albeit untranslated hentai manga from a proxy service. Or better yet, move to Japan and knock yourselves out. It doesn't always have to be free and you don't even have to pay fakku a single fuck.
>not owning a physical copy of your favorite hentai manga
who do people do this? gotta worry about fingerprints because of sweaty palms while fapping, then you gotta worry about accidentally shooting cum on it, so stressful
>Having hard copies of porn in 2014
>Literally begging to have your door kicked in by the fuzz
>Taking up a tonne of space with masturbation material
>Having to explain the shelves upon shelves of porn when somebody visits
Okay, thanks , I was here when the fires started a few months ago with that last shitstorm, just happened to miss this one.
Boy am I glad I have a few TBs with all my favorite stuff backed up.
>What will happen when the next Napata or Homunculus or Ishikei tank gets uploaded and then immediately removed? What will happen when this same thing happens every time something by someone on this list is uploaded?
If the past two days are any precedent, new uploads won't be deleted for a while.
There has been quite a lot of time between a lot people first using the internet and first learning how to use the internet? 4chan is over a decade old for fucks' sake. Not all of us were born computer scientists.
HOLY SHIT WHAT THE FUCK JUST HAPPENED
CHECK EXHENTAI RIGHT NOW
Fucking FUCK I need those Gujira ones. I've been grabbing as much as I can and I've got about 16gb of content from the super sekrit club so that I can reupload if necessary. Those Gujira ones escaped my notice.
You are wrong. Don't parrot without verification. This thread was made with a misleading premise; people are simply trying to re-upload removed material. It'll get removed again.
As much as I love posting NTR there, even ordinary content makes a complete faggot out of them.
Reading the comments section there makes me sick.
>but don't bring a lot of attention to it.
Fat chance. The whole elitist attitude around here about the secret club invites shitload of people and the sad panda threads don't help either.
You can't really make shit that people want to see with free public access and hope selected few will shut up about it and no one else will know.
Yes, there are some that actually do that. Really weird, I know.
So is everything that's going to be removed gone at this point, or are they still going?
My favourites list doesn't seem to be hit too badly so far, can still access a lot of shit from wani artists.
your internet porn is still safe, guys. quit freaking out. Even if those fags at fakku managed to get rid of all of the hentai sites, just download what you can, and like, now. At least then shit can be shared via ddl across irc or email or /a/ or whatever the fuck you use. Jacob and Daiz are little cunts trying to make a little cash, and they're going succeed in that endeavour. move on.
I already had most of them but i am archiving anything under the scat tag right now, few as they are
i wouldn't be able to take such a hit in the future. But what's happening with the archive costs anyway? does
anyone know the rates that the costs are increasing as you download?
Some guy from >>>/g/ explained about not to worry of those deleted galleries because the back ups are stored in their databases or something. I guess I was the only one who listened.
Because drawn porn piracy scene is small, and the scanlators are always paid scanlators from the start anyway.
How is this Fakku/Wani faggotry different from Doujin-moe's faggotry escapes me and you've been all cozy and stuff with those.
>not using google cache
(you could just make up the last torrent by adding the right parameters)
Niche. Look how big all the others are next to eromanga.
Exhentai isn't hosted in the USA, therefore does not need to comply to DMCA takedowns.
Common practice is to comply with takedowns and then reupload everything. More are unlikely to follow because they cost money and can't be enforced overseas.
/a/ panicked for no fucking reason and it is hilariously pathetic how attached people here are to depraved cartoon porn.
I love you guys, but holy fucking shit what are you?
Ex will probably just reupload everything from server archives.
Maybe you should wait a few days first, horsefucker probably wants to keep everything under control and play it cool, which is the MO in these situations.
>Now, Tenboro has realized that he didn't need to take Wani's threats seriously, and is re-enabling the galleries.
Tenboro is just scared that if he visits US he would immediately land on jail.
So while we archive the past kaira/wani stuff and anticipate the Fakku stuff so we can pirate the shit out of all of that (and make Jacob's life more miserable by sending the news to feminists, Fox and CNN) I'm exploring some old stuff. Some old Cuvie right now: that was a good fap.
>usa laws only work inside usa, they don't work in other countries since they have their own fucking laws.
While this is technically correct people tend to forget shit like ACTA and other initiatives aiming to synchronize IP laws around the world and help various LEAs to crack down on any kind of piracy.
Plenty of ISPs will still take content down if they get copyright takedowns from overseas, and besides, Wani are the owners of the content everywhere.
Considering the amount of stuff taken down, I can't imagine it was anything other than a real threat from Wani.
It may be a false alarm but this is a lesson to be learned. We have to save everything good in sad panda in case sad panda goes down. We just can't expect sad panda is always there because there will be a time when sad panda dies and those precious porn might not be seen again. So I think what happened is good because it made people motivate how to save doujins.
