it's definitely not me... and as of this moment, I have no idea who it is.

but I haven't looked at it yet.. just woke up. let me go have a look and see if I can figure it out.

and no, I was posting as Phreadom on here before... in light of the name of my blog. but that's a nick that I only use when doing phreadom stuff... (or as login names for stuff when largo is taken)

basically I've been using the nick largo for about 10 years now, and phreadom for about 4 in limited cases. when I started my Japanese blog, I wanted to use largo like I would normally (not to mention that phreadom has nothing to do with learning japanese, and largo is actually from an anime), but because of the fact that both blogs use the same profile, I had to modify that to be more palatable to both blogs. you might notice that I changed the wording on my profile as well.

all part of me lightening up and moving in new directions. nothing nefarious, and as far as I know, nothing at all to do with this other blog... but like I said, let me go have a look.

thanks for the heads up.
