Isn't the purpose of a fansub group to distribute the episodes they are subbing? Why force fans to subscribe to a forum? In any case, the subscription process doesn't work. (I put in a valid email address and never received a validation, confirmation or rejection notice.)
In this case, this is just stupid penis envy by wanting big numbers.... And nothing says they have to properly distribute it. There is more than just Xdcc bots. And yea, that one..they flood their own server.... so it screws up registering people (registered but no confirm email).
