I do not make a single penny off of any of my videos, actually, for exactly this reason.
If you did not want to call me out, you did not have to. You could have let the issue drop; nothing was forcing you to do otherwise. I am not bitter over how things have gone; why would I be? Saddened, perhaps, that I was not even given the opportunity to correct mistakes, saddened that what patch will exist seems to be going the hyper-literal route, but not bitter. But you choose to mischaracterize my translation, which does make me angry. Changing names does not amount to "whitewashing." Every Japanese person is still Japanese; every Russian is yet a Russian; every Englishman remains an Englishman. Personalities were not changed to make this happen.
And yes, I am responsible for what my more... let us say zealous fanboys have wrought. Which is why I immediately took action to correct it, when I realized what I had unwittingly unleashed. That outcome is my one biggest regret over how the entire thing went down.
OK, let me apologize: I did throw you in with other "Japanifornica" advocates. It's true you're not guilty of that. I'm sorry.
But it's also wrong to say we're "going the hyper-literal route". Had you tried that patch we made, you'd know that.
And let me be clear that I don't hold you accountable for the actions of others. That was my entire point.
