Corrections Policy

My goals are to make this blog as factually accurate as possible, and to maintain a high level of respect for the topics discussed. However, I may make mistakes from time to time, due to writing this blog as a hobby, and being an American viewing a Japanese topic from the outside.

If I violate these goals and make a mistake, please inform me! I will correct the offending material as soon as possible when it is reported.
