Do you know that your for whatever reasons works both ways. For whatever reasons the East Asians don't revert the name of western foreigners to Family-Personal when speaking or referring to them. You can almost put it that only Japanese does that, cause they wanted to. Also the sentence about that part sound kind of offensive in that it kinds of questions why they are not following the "correct" way and format. I hope the mod or any other kind users can actually research a bit more and change that part to less sounding offensive. By putting just whatever reasons and not giving any, it just don't seems to be neutral and more like saying : "personally there are reasons but I don't care enough about them to look it up"./ "For whatever reasons they have, its strange that they are not following our method when they should."
