Messages from Johnny's are fake

Regarding those messages supposedly sent by the Johnny's (those complaining about the fans), I'd like to inform everyone that THEY ARE FAKE. THEY ARE MADE-UP. I'm in the fanclub and I haven't received anything. I waited all this days to see if I'd receive something, but I haven't. Neither have my Japanese friends who are also members.
I read all the comments from the different JE group's communities, and nobody has received anything. If you don't believe me, you can see for yourself here, here, and here.

I know that it is said that the boys from Johnny's have done something like sending a letter to the fanclub members before (maybe more than once), and maybe that one might be true, but this one DEFINITELY ISN'T. This one was not handwritten, it was not signed and, worse, there wasn't even any mail sent to JE fanclub members.

Judging from the way the messages were written, it was probably made-up by a 13 year-old who believed she was helping by doing so. Doesn't anyone think it's at least strange that no senpai wrote any message this time, that the messages were written in extremely unpolite Japanese and that a 15 year-old was the representative? Doesn't anyone find it strange that no one has received this supposed mail?

Just because some young Japanese girls believed this and copied it in their blogs, it doesn't make it true. You shouldn't believe everything you read on the Internet, guys. Blogs don't hold the truth, even if they are Japanese blogs.
It's not my intention to spoil the fun, but I just hate to be deceived. And this time, not only me, but hundreds or maybe thousands of people were deceived as well.
And I'm not saying the guys don't have the right to complain. They do have the right. But the truth is that THEY DIDN'T complain, at least not this time.

Thank you for your attention.

(cross-posted everywhere, sorry)

Edit: masuda_takahits, who is a native Japanese and who is also in YOU&J just gave me this translation of an old message from Tsubasa. She wants all of us to understand that 'warning stalkers and spreading fake documents are different problems'. This is what she wrote:

This is a translation of Tsubasa's handwritten message from the warning sent by Johnny's and shown at Family Club during 2005-2006 to warn stalkers, feel free to copy this if it's valuable.

"I've heard that there are people who are telling lies on the unofficial 'mails' or 'websites' to make fun of fans confused and unfortunately there are lots of people who believe them, that I felt sad a lot. Please never believe except Johnny's web(*J-web) and Johnny's net!"

Good afternoon! and a request from the Maintainer

Hello everyone!

I hope everyone is doing well!  I know many of you have started the new school year (or new term) this month just like me, which brings all kinds of fun things.  It also means that we are all pretty busy, I imagine. >.<

In my previous message, I had said I would be shutting down the k8_com_group at the end of August, but due to work and other obligations, I wasn`t able to.  Therefore, this weekend I will be sitting down and moving things over to this community, and then I will be deleting that community.

As things, such as the sidebar links, will be moving to the main community, I have a few reminders and requests:
</lj>
  • If your community is listed here, then you may apply to be placed in the Monthly Spotlight again.  However, please understand that I will not give out `permanent` positions, and if you do reapply, you have to wait your turn.
  • If you do apply for the Mothly Spotlight, your community MUST be related to Johnny`s/Kanjani8.  Recently, communities have applied that are completely unrelated to this community.  Read the rules before you apply.
  • Tag your entries please!  Everyone has been doing a great job lately! :D
  • We are NOT allowing sales posts on the community anymore, and this applies to giveaways as well.  Recently some were posted, and were deleted because some contained sales posts in the links to the information.  Read the rules before you post.
I will post again sometime this weekend to update you on the move. :D I hope everyone has a good weekend!

Sincerely,
Ren

EDIT: The community has been deleted, and I have moved the community posts here:

Advertise Your Communities!!!

Hello kanjani8  members!

Want to advertise your community? Become a featured community in the Monthly Features on the sidebar?

You've come to the right place! (^0^)/

As the rules of the community state, we are no longer allowing advertisement posts on the community.  However, we invite you to advertise your community here in the sidebar of the main community. 

"How do you do this?" you ask?!

It's simple!  Read the rules below, and then post a comment to this post!

Rules:
  • Your community MUST be related to Johnnys and/or Kanjani
  • Include the following when you apply:


  • Please make your description only one or two short sentences. We reserve the right to edit your descriptions if they get too long.
After you apply, I will update the Monthly Features in the sidebar once a month, on the 8th of each month.  Please put your requests in before that date.  If you miss, there is always next month :D

*All comments will be screened*

*Disclaimer*
I will NOT do any of the following:
  • give permanent spots on the sidebar
  • respond to demands or rude questions
You may ask to be added for as many months as you want.  But if communities apply over and over, I'll have to put a 'once every 2 months' limit up, or it becomes the same as a 'permanent' position.  Also, if there is a shortage of applications, I'll just start posting communities from back issues so that everyone has a chance to be seen.

Thank you for your understanding!  I hope to see lots of new communities advertising :D

Sincerely,
Mari
