We're supposed to do a search on "James Dean" or something?

The original post was nearly incoherent so you didn't miss much.

He suspected that a coworker had made derogatory/defamatory comments about him on a web blog and wanted to know if any of us had seen any such comments about a gaijin anywhere on the web recently.

Sufficiently nonspecific that the only way I could see for us to be of any help, since he gave no name, no location, no anything, would be for us to google his user name.

Did you know James Dean was a movie actor?

Is that what he was asking?
For some reason I couldn't for the life of me figure out what he was asking. I thought he wanted some advice from gaijin who had had trouble at work, because he was being bullied (or some such).

I will confess that I had to read the post more than once in order to figure it out.

Yeah, I was going to respond with simply "What?", but I thought better of it. Wouldn't have made a difference.
