Look, some people, like me, just don't have the manga easily accessible. Just because we don't have the means to participate in a group readthrough doesn't mean that we (or at least I) mean disrespect for the series.
Believe me, nothing would thrill me more than to be able to take part in a group project such as that, but I just don't have the manga and therefore cannot participate. No disrespect intended.
Honestly, I would have loved to see the idea take off to a point that we could do group readthroughs of other Pokemon manga in the future. PokeSpe is overshadowing some great stuff out there. =\
