Companies can have any content rules that they want so they should be allowed to remove whatever, but journalists trying to suppress content is not good and represents a bad precedent. Once something goes up on the net, it's done

Really good news, hopefully some major Russian companies can collapse as to erode Putin's Oligarch support base.
I assume most of the wealthy elite in Russia are completely against Putin due to the exposure of their wealth, but cannot publicly go against him otherwise they'd lost it

Let them do what they want, in the end their town will suffer from big losses in business
Posted in: Japan used to be tolerant of alcohol consumption and music at the beach, but now that local residents have come to be bothered by it I think that some amount of regulation is unavoidable. It will be good if this can become an opportunity for people to care about beaches and build up a willingness to follow the rules.

This is good news. I'm a smoker but I think it's a bad habit. I wouldn't mind the government raising prices on cigs to about 1,000 yen a pack, as long as they liberalise the e-cig industry more.

Neymar really isn't that good, he hasn't made his mark at all at Barca. And anyway Real would have the strongest attacking lineup now with Ronaldo, Bale and Rodriguez

Cool? What was the exact word he used in Japanese?
Posted in: Japan is a developed nation with the numerous problems resulting from a mature society, including a stagnant birthrate, aging population and financial stringency. If Japan can be the first in the world to solve these problems, that would be extremely 'cool.' I believe Japan can provide new solutions for future generations in the world.

Definitely overblown as you hardly see any incidents here, cyclists and scooters in Europe are by far the worst on Earth
Posted in: Tokyo is in a unique situation for an advanced country. In some places, cyclists are considered the same as pedestrians, and in others, they are allowed to use the road properly. If you tried to ride like you do here in other countries, you would be scolded.

Good on Abe, it was probably very difficult for him to expand sanctions on Russia seeing as he made it a point of his administration for greater ties with Russia. Although these sanctions are basically completely symbolic, it still serves to isolate the morons in the Kremlin.

Although I agree that Israel needs to take some sort of action against Hamas for the firing of rockets into Israel, I do think Israel is getting out of control with the civilian killings.. The blockade of Gaza itself is a bit of a moral disgrace..
