Master Japanese tip!

I really didn't see any reason to lock it. Sure, (unnamed person) comes across as arrogant and (probably) lying, but one shouldn't have to lock a trhead because someone is obnoxious. one should only (IMO) lock a thread when it has seriously degenerated into chaos, name-calling, or general bad feelings all around. This thread could die on its own if people ignored it or stopped posting, which is the usual death of bad threads. ;)

Locking, OTOH, has always struck me as a kind of punitive thing, and I don't like to do it unless necessary.

Yeah, but it wasn't really at the chaos level that to *me* warrants a lock.

People can always just stop posting and move on... ;)

You would have done better to start a new thread, really.

It's called Kimigayo. Details and a link to an audio version are available here.

Edit: the audio link on that page is broken. Try here instead.
