Registration System

September 18th, 2005 . by Matt

Hello all.

Unfortunately I have been forced to bring in a registration system because of excessive (Korean) trolling. I didnt want to do that, I wanted everyone to be able to freely express their opinion with having to log in, but some people took advantage of it to the detriment of this site.

You are able to register by clicking on ‘register’ on the right. Once you have registered, you will be able to post.

UPDATE: Because of the ‘Hall of Shame‘, I have decided to lift the posting restrictions. Trollish things will go there instead.

    Hi Matt,

    I see that the Korean trolls have swarmed your site too under multiple false IDs which I warned about in one of my previous posts. Seems like my premonitions were dead on correct about the Korean propensity to troll any Japan-related website on the internet. Obviously, they hate and our jealous of Japan but for a people who so vehmently claim that they feel superior and are not jealous of Japan, they sure do obsess about Japan and monitor over it to the point where they feel the need to infiltrate the internet to make sure no positive comments are being made about Japan….pathetic.

    Speaking of which I wanted to point you to another site where the Korean trolls have gotten out of hand. Have you been to the Japan Today web forums? Please go to the link below:

    http://forum.japantoday.com/forumid_79/p_/tmode_1/smode_1/tt.htm

    Over there, it seems as though a Korean troll by the name of “Khitan Warlord” cannot stand to have a single second pass by in which someone makes any compliment about Japan. Immediately afterwards, he will always post something from the tabloid papers in Korea which have as much credibility as the National Enquirer that ridicule Japan even when the topic has nothing to do with Korea vs. Japan in the first place. THen his cronies such as “iamjaey” will join in on the Japan-bashing wagon and pat each other on the back for a job well done by taking turns slamming Japan.

    There are tons of other anti-Japanese comments swarming this supposedly Japan-centered forum under a plethora of multiple IDs, all of which claim to be non-Korean. However, it is so obvious that all of them are Korean or Kyopo as the immature jealousy and inferiority complex shine through like the sun. Furthermore, I am almost certain that at most, the trolls probably number no more than 3 or 4 people, but because they post under multiple IDs to falsely infalte their numbers, it seems like more.

    You never see Japanese people obsessing about how their country’s image compares to that of Korea so there are hardly any in any Korean website. I think Koreans deep down inside realize this fact and it makes them even more jealous angry.

    What is your opinion on this and the link above?

    Hi wiesunja,

    Good name. wiesun is what annoys me too.

    Ill take a look at the link you have provided. I have seen it before but I didnt read much. Still, I can guess what they are doing. Exactly the same thing they were doing here, no doubt.

    Does this really help keep the K-trolls out? Anyway I dont mink korean trolls discussing things, but if you look, even on the marmot-kimchi hole, the Kyopo crowd will keep flooding and flooding and flooding and attacking and attacking until all other comments are off the page.

    What the K-trolls want is to lower the conversation to racist remarks so they cn dismiss Matts message as racism.

    Hi Takeshima. I can see you are scrupulously using the correct name for that island in the Sea of Japan.

    Actually, they can troll all they want. I will just put it in the Hall of Shame from now on.

    “Hi Takeshima. I can see you are scrupulously using the correct name for that island in the Sea of Japan.”

    I thought the correct name was Liancourt Rocks?

    to avoid controversy, even wikipedia does not have a link to “takeshima island”…one is redirected to “Liancourt Rocks” article.

    but…then…it is your opinion….please don’t ban me…

    Well, even though you have contributed nothing, and keep complaining about bannings, you have not been banned yet. Try reading the FAQ if you are worried about banning. In truth, about 3 people have been banned out of dozens using the site. They were banned after plenty of warnings too, as you know.

    In short, participate in the discussion (on topic) and you will be fine. Continue to post endlessly about banning even though you are obviously not banned (spam), and be treated like a spammer.

    Personally, I would like to know your opinion, since you have never offered it before. Is the island in the Sea of Japan Dokdo, Takeshima, or the Liancourt Rocks, and why.

    It was just a joke;;;;

    The only problem I had was that no one knew anything about you.
    Is “Matt” Japanese? Does he hate Korea? Why are all the posts so negative toward Korea?

    Now, you have a FAQ which explains a lot. So, visitors can now understand the reason behind this website. If more posts explain your background and experience in Korea/Japan, things would become more friendly.

    It is easy to hate a faceless person. So, give this website more of a “face”.

    Hi Matt,

    I’ve registered, but now seems that I needn’t have.

    Anyway, it is a little irritating when Korean women who have paid good money to improve their English in Sydney have to look over their shoulder when talking to me in public in case they are seen by a self-appointed morals policeman – i.e. a Korean male.

    Better to register – without registration, anyone could put in your username and say things that you wouldnt say.

    Thats true. There is certainly an atmosphere of oppression. Even foreign men that are married to Korean women cant quite escape it, if the Korean man thinks that he is a ‘foreign playboy’ and has to ‘save’ the Korean woman (It has happened to a friend living in Korea a few times. When it does, he tells them off in Korean).

    It’s funny you post this here because this blog mostly talks about Korea and most of the posters are not even Korean…Maybe you meant to say:
    ” Non-Koreans are surely obsessed with Korea and monitor it to the point where they feel the need to infiltrate the internet to make sure no positive comments are made about Korea… pathetic”

    (sorry, couldn’t helpt it.)

    Victor, I dont think people are obsessed with Korea. Rather, most of the people here have some involvement with Korea or Koreans in some way or another. Therefore they are affected by Korean attitudes. In what way are you related to Korea (actually, I am interested in knowing how old you are – I am guessing you are a teenager)?

    Please.. Matt. I was just poking fun at his post by merely changing “japan” to “korea” (with a bit of editing).

    In what way are you related to Korea (actually, I am interested in knowing how old you are – I am guessing you are a teenager)?

    My parents are Korean and i’ve been called a “banana” (not that I like that term)

    And, sorry.. I’m not going to post my age.

    Fair enough. Teens can be quite sensitive, Ive found.
