Quoting Michael:
"Imagine someone like yourself who is bilingual 
(English/Japanese) but isn't aware of these types of changes. He gets a 
demo CD only to find out that this piece of junk can't even unzip a file 
correctly!!! :-/"

It would actually be insulting my intelligence, if an expert in 
communications would want to make me believe, he misunderstood, that this is 
written from the perspective of an "imagined someone".
