sad just sad.

Actually, ex_drone, your request fits with the requirement placed upon me to limit the frequency of my posts, meaning I should greet at least two or more members at a time.

So I welcome ex_drone and terminatorx, the old and the new!

To our two latest members, Indigo and ShutterbugX, WELCOME!!

And it is interesting these two, because it would indeed be a shutterbug that could quickly tell us the unusual properties of indigo.

Just out of curiosity, when were you at Kansai Gaidai?

Ah that's a shame. I was studying at JCMU (in Shiga prefecture) during Winter 2003 and Winter 2004, and Kansai Gaidai was one of my old haunts (friends with a lot of students there). I was just curious if we might have met.

I used to have a good avatar too. But it was not approved by the powers that be (Fetsus-over-easy) and I was asked to take it down. I of course refused, but the result was that it was taken down anyway. I now have NO avatar. I hope this helps. :cry:

edited to add:

There was an sccJapan post before this one, but it's been deleted it would seem. This was not intended for the previous poster.

There is nothing to see here. Please go about your business.

Laurenville wrote:glad LJ came back....

this is where it all started for me...
I was staring at a fork in the road. thinking of moving to Japan to work for Nova. I didnt know how to make the call. Then a beacon called out. It was the Lets Japan. I never wrote much onthe forum, but I read ALOT. I could see NOVa had its critics, but I figured, what the heck, Ill always have the LetsJapan Forums to come home to at night. AEON wont hire me....why not give it a go? And a go I gave it. June 24, 2004 was my landing in Japan. And possibly one week later...give or take, the site went into sleep. I dusted myself off from feelings of abandonment and quickly made some friends...which all somehow later on all unfortunately, or was it, ended up becoming either enemies or strangers....and took to the lonely road of being a single, illiterate gaijin female in Japan for the next year and a half. I DID MY BEST!...I enrolled in Language schools, joined Japan today friend finder, and took the bullet train to Kyoto. ALL of those things were wonderful, but none of them filled the void left in LJ s place.

With a string of accomplishments and experiences behind me, I decided that I was filled up full of Japanese culture and BEING COMPLETELY INDEPENDENT and came back to Florida.

Im so glad that Lets Japan finally opened up again.

That's great to hear. But what's with the spam?

VB: You the man! :wnw:

But I checked the links and then closed my browser as soon as I realised I was reading sales bollocks. Wasted an entire .5 seconds of my life. :shock:

Just to make a quick point: one of the things I like about the internet, and especially this site, is the number of people who give their free time, which - oxymoronically - is quite valuable, to help others and provide all kinds of information and learning to people they don't know and will probably never meet.

It seems to me, unwittingly or not, these people are creating a world where people are pooling their resources - read information, knowledge, time and effort - to improve the world for the benefit of all, rather than just to advance their own personal economic situation.

To me, this is a new form of socialism/ society and is already having a considerable global impact, the implications of which we are only just beginning to realise. I think that this is one of the greatest developments of the 21st century and I forsee a world where this will only just get bigger and better, potentially, greatly improving the lives of all the worlds inhabitants in the process.

LJ is part of this and works because of the time, knowledge and resources kindly donated by Chris and Shawn and the effort put into the posts made by its members, many of whom are highly knowledgeable and can command considerable compensation for their time in the "real world".

It seems to me that carrying a sig. to make a few bucks out this site's members is pretty synical and runs contrary to what a lot of the users of this site are doing and arguably some of the values and ideals implied by their actions.

Just my take FWIW

Hello, I'm Sumi and I live in West Japan. This has to be the first Japan-related forum I've ever come across that is friendly and tolerant, and isn't filled with weirdos and wannabe otaku, and I'm mighty pleased to make your acquaintance! :)
