Over the years the internet culture has experienced a radical change in clientele. It isn't the friendly place it once was except for isolated instances. Like this board, for example. Someone painting the broad brush stroke of racism to our community is overlooking its friendly and helpful nature. In my mind that's the important part. As for wording and expressions, why not cut people some slack and lighten up a bit.

So this thread remains as history for others to read and evaluate for themselves as to what's important. If their "take away" is to focus on something negative then so be it. Each to his own. It's impossible to please everyone and no matter what you say or do someone is going to object. That's life past, present and future. I do feel sorry for anyone caught up in creating hate, carrying it and/or inferring it's present. It's a lot of overhead that could be much better applied to other more constructive things.

ThumperStorm, don't disappear. I read the comment as delineating a geographic area where the subjects/or item was made(sold) etc. That was helpful to be clear, because often there are slight differences between models/parts from continent to continent. I did not feel as though the writer had a negative association with the term that you were offended by. Also, in this day of texting, its apparent people are abbreviating ever more. You know the IMHO, lol, etc. thing? I may type the same thing in a lazy moment, yet I haven't a negative association with anything Japanese.

I believe if someone posts an errant slant, a negative sarcastic covert dig as part of their statement, a core person/admin would promptly handle it. This is one of the better forums for that kind of thing. I can tell that, and this only my second post here. So, take it easy, stick around smile
