Response to Others may have noticed, notably on PMWF and granted, it could be the topic of
images, I did run across the history of the Japanese flag color and design and read/saw the various wartime designs. To me, a 61 year old Chinese Canadian who now lives in Japan, I doubt very much if any of the SCWF members ever knew that the Rising Sun used in the header was Japan's Naval flag.
Heck, most members who have used the word 'Jap watch...for sale' have no idea of its wartime derogatory origins! Isthmus had spotted this once and had asked posters to be a bit more mindful in the future and sensitive to SCWF's international viewers.
My 53 year old Japanese wife has no idea of the word JAP's overseas wartime meaning! hahaha! (of course, those Japanese Canadian and American citizens interred in POW camps would).
Still, I think it is a 'Non-issue'.
