Formerly from Seattle, I’ve lived in Japan for more than 17 years. I work in the mobile gaming industry, mainly localization and licensing.
My hobbies include tabletop roleplaying games and writing short fiction. I enjoy studying Japanese history, reading sword & sorcery and pulp fiction, and listening to gothic and industrial music.

I've made a deliberate choice against a quoting feature because it inevitably adds toxicity to people's behaviours. You are tempted to quote when you should be replying, and so you speak at your audience instead of with the person you are talking to. It becomes performative. Even when doing it for "good" like ridiculing awful comments, you are giving awful comments more eyeballs that way. No quote toots. Thank's
This is worth sharing.
