Thousands of fans across the world appreciate the work you do - and just a few fans are
occasionally offended by a translation of a few words from English to Japanese.
These are probably fans who don't have the time, skill or dedication to work out the translations for themselves. They are probably the ones who are happy to consume all the information which you put on your website - but aren't able to give anything back, not even tolerance
That is so unfair, but please understand that those people are in a very small minority.
It is clear to the majority of Michael Schenker fans that you are the one person who has done the most to keep the name (and career) of Michael Schenker alive over the last 7 years.
Despite there being no PR company sending out press releases with factual information, you manage to keep your news pages factual. Your website is the one place where Schenker fans can be sure of getting up-to-date information on albums, tourdates, cancellations, re-schedules, reviews, endorsements, interviews - everything.
If an element of speculation ever occurs, it is clearly marked as such, and as soon as facts are forthcoming from any quarter, they are made known on your site (e.g the recent events surrounding Chris Logan).
How dare people take all that for granted. How dare they!!! If anyone thinks they can do a better job than Ritchie is doing, then please, you are very welcome to try. But make sure you have enough time to keep up with the workflow, because speaking from my own experience, I know it's not something to embark on lightly - it takes HOURS out of EVERY day.
I don't speak or write Japanese, so if anyone replies to this message in Japanese I won't understand it, but please don't take offence at it. I am just expressing my support for Ritchie after the way he has been misrepresented and misunderstood by a very small group of people.
It's a big pity that the fans of Michael Schenker can't be united, instead of divided.
