In a localization, the decision of changing currency is debatable. Following basic language conventions is not.
The game takes place in Japan, the characters are Japanese, all of this was localized as such, and so on and so forth. Why is "appropriate for the context of the game" not relevant? The region the game takes place in is Japan, so technically, they aren't
speaking in a region appropriate way.
To that end, I'd say saying "saying 'thing I disagree with' makes you look weird" makes you look worse than the person saying the "thing" in question.
Surely there was a better way to word that?

Euh, I'm just used to people complaining/trolling on the internet these days without giving some sort of evidence to back their claims. So it's not that I need to approve what they say, I just feel that they just need to back up their credentials. That's just how things work.
But hey, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, so whatever
Er. You start off saying "I don't mean they have to express themselves the way I want them to," which is awesome, but... you just kind of spend the rest of the post saying they do? People can't say they don't like something or disagree with a decision without having to give an essay on why? That's silly. Sometimes people just like or dislike or agree with/disagree with things because they just do. Somethings they feel the way they do and can't express themselves or just don't want to, or perhaps they don't feel there is anything to be gained from the situation. There are countless reasons for why "reasons" might not be given beyond "the complaint isn't a valid one" - not to mention the fact that it still might be valid even if that person can't give reason as to why.
Yes, there are trolls out there, but taking a "guilty until they prove themselves innocent stance" with everyone just comes off as much too extreme to me. The trolls will show they're trolls without issue, as they do here. That's no reason to treat everyone else like they might be, is it?
That said, as this is no longer about the game, we should probably wrap this up within the next post or so, if that's okay with you - and I hope I don't come across as too harsh, but it's a mindset I've seen before and the harshness of it and dismissiveness towards the other person in question just baffles me.

Everybody is entitled to their own opinion, however this is the important part, if you are willing to post your opinion on this forum then you need to be prepared to have your opinion criticised by others and giving opinions like "Kyoko is the stupidest character among the DR1 cast" (yes that was exaggerated) will highly increase your chances of people criticising you to the point you would be considered a troll. To put it simply just as everyone is entitled to their own opinion, everybody is entitled to agree/disagree with that opinion, It works both ways. If you don't want this to happen, then the best thing to do would be to not post your opinion.
Very true! On the other hand, you aren't required to defend anything you say in the way that is being described here either, and if that has consequences for that person, then it does.
