I’m beginning to think that Japan Today should be renamed as “Japan News for Stupid Foreigners”…because while they try to do a good job of reporting, ultimately their Comments sections are filled with “blah, this is stupid”, “Japan is stupid”, “the Japanese are stupid”, “this article is biased towards the Japanese”, etc. I think the only people who comment over there are bored English teachers living in Japan who feel homesick for their native countries.
I’ve considered posting there to try and add commentary that actually isn’t derogatory for a change, but ultimately I never do. It seems like too much hassle. Instead, I’ll just stop reading the comments ;P
