R.I.P Scans Daily

the livejournal group Scans Daily has been shout down due to them breaking livejournal's TOS

for those who don't know scans daily posted scans of comics books for the last 6 or so years. but they had a rule that someone couldn't post the entire comic (I think the rule was no more then half an issue can be posted on the site)

it seem like one of the property owners didn't like it and reported them for copyright violation. which is something that is in the companies right to do.

But giving that they had a rule not to post a full comic, their post where really survived as previews for comics. I know I have bought comics that I would have ignored because I read some parts of the comic on scans daily and I am sure their are others just like me. Now that they are gone that will be one less way for me to find some new comics that I may like.

though I guess on the flip side of the coin it also allowed me to know what comics not to pick up because they where crap
