Well! Out of the clear blue, we received this random flame from some dull person. Pikkie replied to it, but I, Mimete, decided to post my thoughts here for all to enjoy (hopefully).

Night Castle of the Skies and Anime Kingdom of Truth, we think the
a good day to catch Pikurl on. Just before she goes to work! We do
not judge the pages, we simply review the page, and the ENTIRE page.
People make pages with effort and they try to make it nice looking.
I am aware of that. We here, at Fifth Witch, also make pages to try to create a pleasing effect for our viewers.
Some people may not have scanners or programs to edit images like most people,
I am also aware of that, but it is not difficult to go to http://www.jasc.com to get Paint Shop Pro which is both powerful and FREE.
but if they use images from other pages, let them use it, they have no other choice.
Many people out there do not even use images with permission or with
any credit. Then they go and say "Don't steal my images". I am sorry,
but that unjust, especially since the people who scanned or created
the images are suffering from it.
The way the fifth witch judges Sailormoon Pages is not nice and polite.
world is not nice and polite. We cannot help it if 90% of Sailormoon
pages out there suck. The people who make the the pages should make
a reasonable effort to make their page presentable and at least slightly
original rather than stealing other peoples' images and HTML, direct
link, et cetera.
This is the worse Sailormoon guide page we've seen in a long time.
is your opinion. We get mail almost everyday from people who like
our page. We also are linked from many pages, even from people who
appreciate the help we have given them by pointing out mistakes on
pages that they may not have noticed. Have you even considered that
the Fifth Witch is out there to point out something that the author
may have overlooked? Tell me something. Have you ever been to SONY's
homepage, and found it littered with spelling and gramatical mistakes?
Or have you ever gone to another homepage from another big company
and seen plagiarized HTML or images from SONY? I seriously doubt it.
The same ethics apply to Sailormoon pages. Don't take what's not yours
unless it's okay to do so.
I feel sorry for all of the Sailormoon Pages that have been judged here.
We do not judge the pages, we simply state what is there and what isn't there.
Judging pages in a cruel way is not the way to judge anything at all.
if we did judge, and the page we went to was less than stellar, for
example, bandwidth stealing, the page shouldn't be dismissed. Take
the Rose Dawsun page for example. The author was asked several times
by Sailor Grub and other people to stop taking their images and HTML.
Grub even changed her image maps what were stolen and switched names.
Rose went to the page and changed the filename of her stolen info
to Grub's new name. Tell me, is that right? Stealing peoples' hand
work? Their time spent in being original? No, I do believe that it
is not right of them to do so.
Take a look at our page:
Castle of the Skies
Kingdom of Truth
take a look when I get time, for now, I am just replying to your flame.
You may think our pages are awful looking, but we put effort into the pages as a team and work hard to earn our place on the web.
I've never even heard of you.
President of Night Caslte of the Skies and Anime Kingdom of Truth.
I do not care if you did not listen to this, but I hope you did. I also hope that I have clarified what the fifth Witch does. You tell us not to judge, but in this letter, you judge us. Why don't you just burn us at the stake while your at it?
Yeesh, Ms. President, don't you have anything better to do? Get a job! - Mimi
