    Do you really need me to sit you down and explain why a white guy from Finland trying to change the meaning of the Japanese imperial flag is a stupid idea?

    If you read even more carefully you might even notice I said I can perfectly well understand people's feelings about the signs. It is just as relevant to them as the swastika is around here. Hell, I don't like the swastika myself for all the nazi connotations and sure as hell can understand why the Imperial Army flag can cause similar reactions in those that were or who's family was directly affected by the atrocities. I just don't think the gut should be the correct response even in these issues without at least thinking about different approaches.

    I merely pondered on the possibility of handling things in a different way.. and if you read really carefully enough you might notice I was actually extrapolating the situation to a larger context and wondering about when a symbol loses relevance / current meaning.

    The point you're countering wasn't it anyways. My thought was about how the current way of vilifying a symbol be it the swastika or whatever can actually be counterproductive as in it gives validation for the symbol to be a rallying point for I dunno, right wing fucktards? Wasn't probably too obvious though, and I apologise for that. Third language and all.

    Anway, I'm sorry you feel like upholding differences between skin colour and origins is more important than discussing ideas on their own merit. Just imagine I'm one of third generation holocaust survivor jews, maybe that'll help you with objectivity?

    Don't hate the player. Hate the game. Since we're taking care to avoid hypocricy and all, I feel obligated to remind you it wasn't white folk who coined that phrase.

    I said I am happy for those people who wanted this. I meant it, and yet I still think censorship is stupid.

    I also thought that it was a stupid fucking gi.
    Whoops, you're right. I apologize for mischaracterizing your position.

    Those comments were directed more at Bnet.
