    Regrettably, this is not an example of “how modern technology can clash with deeply ingrained cultural mores” but rather how it can facilitate some rather negative, albeit deeply ingrained, cultural mores. Discrimination against bukarumin and other groups is nothing new here (witness the anecdote about Aso and Nonaka in the Times article). Attention was called to the Google issue by a group of bukaru acitvists, not by a general public outcry.
