People sometimes ask why/how this is the “Official Ramen Homepage”. Being official is pretty easy. You put up a page in the 1995/1996 timeframe, and add the word “Official” to the title. As long as you are the first and the best, there’s no problem.
Of course, being Official does cause me some headaches. There are lots of people out there who come to this page to:
- complain that the ramen they bought (presumably from me) had some problem
- ask me to work with their import/export company to sell ramen in country X
The point of this post is to hopefully head-off emails on topics 1 and 2 in the future.
PS – Can anyone guess from which domain I get most of the type 1 complaints?
