About the Life In Japan Forum

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Life In Japan : Policy
Hello and welcome to Life in Japan bulletin board. This was set up as an alternative to fj.life.in-japan newsgroup that has gotten a little out of hand with flames. Applicable topics for this forum include details of daily life such as "Where can I buy cilantro" or "What is the difference between Sky/PerfectTV and DirectTV", etc. Please do not post topics that are more relevant to soc.culture.japan and other flamefest newsgroups. Posting is encouraged, but be aware that the followups may be deleted by the forum administrators for not abiding by the following guidelines: 1. Posts should reply to the original question or other issue brought up by the followup replies. 2. No flames. Leave emotion and flaming for fjlij or scj, not here. 3. Please contribute. Thanks in advance for your contribution and helping to make this flame free.
