I finally looked at a write someone posted on CRA. Anything in particular that's an issue?
No, just trying to put info out there instead of the usual drum banging blamers. There is more than enough blame to go around and I get sick and tired of people just parroting what they hear instead of looking into the real problem to get a real solution.

optical character definition?

It ain't rocks that "curse". It's da mana. and much more.
"non-authentic superstitions"
LOOOVE that term.
OCD is a scientific term used to describe people living with obsessive, compulsive disorder. But I guess if you are educated, you would know that, just like people making up superstitions that did not exist in ancient times. Believe me, because not only am I a REAL HAWAIIAN (rather than a fake one going by a non-authentic Hawaiian name) who is fluent in the language and knows his history. And all the mind games in the world won't scare me.

Why do you refer to Americans as "they?" Aren't you one?

You shouldn't joke about local beliefs

Robin K. Campaniano of AIG Hawaii shows to us what he thinks of the host culture by relegating Pele and her home to low-level mainland superstition. I quote: "We'll be careful not to step on any cracks, break any mirrors and avoid stepping under ladders. We'll also tell our corporate office to return those lava rocks." Of course as a reply to this, we might hear the same excuses for this all-too-common ethnocentric disrespect and ignorance: "No disrespect intended. I was just joking. Lighten up." We hear this too often when blatant disrespect is conveyed.
You can bet I won't support AIG anytime soon.

You are an shameless fraud!...stop pretending to be a native Hawaiian when you are really just a haole.
