Soc.culture.japan started out as a BITNET mailing list that was
administered from one of the machines at MIT. Sometime in or around
1987, the newsgroup soc.culture.japan was created, and the articles
between scj and the mailing list were gated back and forth for quite
a while. The mailing list apparently no longer exists, and the audience
for scj has grown much wider since.

In June 1996, a group of scj readers unhappy with the high noise level
in scj created soc.culture.japan.moderated as an alternative to scj.
The group's aim was to have a relatively low-noise forum for free
The full version of scjm's history may be found in the scjm FAQ mentioned
in section 3.2.4.
