Japan Probe not posting so much these days. What’s up with “James Probel”?

A site I read from time to time, that I’ve blogged about before.

A notice, too, that traffic has been declining steadily on it over the past year. Very little of the readership is actually in Japan, compared to other countries that hit it.

Christopher Johnson’s take on the site is that it’s set up to defame news reporters, with the defamation interspersed with various arcana about social issues or unusual cultural items about Japan. A number of good reporters have been hit by the site, and it does make one wonder.
