I regret to post my previous mail. You English Wikipedians shall be
cursed of disclimination.

I have told to the Japanese community you lifted up that fool
ethnocentric and discliminative policy. I would like to add some
editors hadn't believed Engilsh Wikipedia did enforce so a
discliminative policy. You made me a liar. Well, it is not a big deal,
but still the fact remains you are racists.
