    I have images of some of the Chinese material stolen. How do I post images here?

    You can hit the 'upload a file' button on the bottom right. It has to be no more than 1920x960. Then hit the full size button. The thumbnails are annoying.

    You can also host, do a gallery, and other stuff, but the direct upload works well.

    I was hoping you'd have something identifying the Japanese material. That is what I look at the most. Super sad situation!

    Yes, and this is widely viewed as a bad thing, or at least you'd think so from the number of folks holding up "they want to impose Sharia law on everyone" as a boogeyman...
