and compares it to his connection afterwards with a full-of-praise Tepido “Hikosaemon”
I know Hiko through Google+ and a few other online places, but the only place our Tepidean paths have crossed is when he checked out Mr Arudou’s and my schlongs. So, I decided to drop Hiko a line on Google+, and he said:
On Debito vs Tepido, and other similar forums, I look at it mostly as the same kind of lonely testosterone alpha male vs alpha male trolling that characterizes the expat community in Japan
He also says he has never posted to Tepido.org, which should be obvious from the above comment, but even more revealing, he didn’t even know it is my site!
Furthermore, thanks to Mr Arudou’s post, Hiko tells me he has been getting phone texts asking if he runs Tepido.org, and flames on his blog and Twitter, even as far as death threats, apparently! He also had this exchange with Mr Arudou over Twitter:
At least that solves the mystery of "The Tepido Twelve".
Mr Arudou, I think you had better apologise to him too.
