Unnecessarly censored word?

by elmer92413 / August 9, 2008 7:12 PM PDT

I was making a post and trying to reference the women's soccer match between the USA and Japan, "US vs J@p women's soccer match" but it seems that the initial used for Japan is censored? I would have just edited my post and written the full name, but it seems you can't edit post? So anybody reading my comment isn't going to know what country I was referring to now.

The correct abbreviation for Japan
by Steven Haninger / August 9, 2008 10:41 PM PDT

is JP. The other has been considered for a long time as a slur because it was so often used as such that it became so to an entire generation. There's no quick way out of these situations. Use "JP" and you're ok.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
