    An article came out yesterday in the Asia Times that necessitates a clarification/correction by Debito.org.

    Japan’s cyber-bullies fight comments war
    By Christopher Johnson
    Asia Times, March 15, 2013

    For the record, this section:

    Nicolson has found the time and energy to lead a group of cyber-bullies who hounded US-born rights activist, author and Japan Times columnist Debito Arudou out of Japan.

    is not true. I am in Hawaii for research purposes, working on my PhD. Activities in cyberspace are unconnected to my overseas hiatus.

    For the record.  Arudou Debito

      It seems like moving to a different physical location wouldn’t do much to stop cyber-bullying, anyway.

      Interesting how the current debate about regulating website is going in the UK, can’t image this going on here:
