I'm sorry to say i can't answer your question. Hmm im not sure what you have been putting into your searches, but perhaps they have been to general. Try to pick a specific area just like you introduced about America.
(i.e) Japans concerns on....... health,enviornment, employment. I imagine this will get more results.

I have been away from the forum for quite some time, but i see it has become even more harsh and sarcastic then i remember. Your question was out of innocent curiosity i think and had someone seriously answered it, it could have been a good topic of discussion.

anyways, good luck finding the answer. :)

Consider the posts you make and the responses you get.

Personally, I don't care one way or the other, but you have an annoying habit of starting threads with really vague but sometimes loaded questions that basic research should provide information on.

Think about it.

Guitarplayer, These kind of threads could prove to be much more valuable if a) you showed you had done your own basic research first and b) you presented the question as more of a discussion.

ie. instead of asking us to list all the problems Japan has, if you had said "I know that Japan has problems with issues like it's population and the environment at the moment, but what do you think is the largest problem facing Japan today?" it may have been more inducive to bringing out a serious response. But then it may not have, I can't speak for everyone on the forum.

Not necessarily. You just can't expect other people to do your work for you. Unless you are paying them.

Discussions or questions about Japanese culture.

As people have said, the problem with your questions are that (1) they are way too vague and broad, and (2) they often seem to indicate that you haven't even taken a few minutes to do some research on your own.

But remember that just because you post a question doesn't mean that anyone is required to answer it.

Overly broad questions give the impression that you're just doing the online equivalent of tossing peanuts into the monkey cage at the zoo.....Just tossing something out for the sole purpose of amusing yourself by watching the monkeys scramble.

Just for the record, and not that it should matter, I don't dislike you.

I don't get the joke =\


..Is it even a joke?

EDIT: I decided to add something relatively constructive.

Regardless of being liked or not, remember that this is a learning forum, so if you do your best to research/study something, and still can't find it, post here. People appreciate it when you try to figure things out on your own first - It shows initiative and motivation.

Guitarplayer, I’m sorry I have to tell you this. You did come across a little weird when posting a question, for example in this thread, if you don’t really care to take JLPT 4, why are you mentioning JLPT4 and 3 in the first place? You will never know your standard, even though I know you can always try JLPT questions online at some web sites, but they are very different from the actual test you experienced yourself on the real spot plus a limited time you have to race with.

So, to avoid giving that kind of impression, you should really look into the way you phrase your questions. Sometimes, paraphrasing key words get you lots of information, but sometimes it just give you a yes or no, so think objectively when someone respond to you, make a little effort and improve with experience.
