comment Difference between 証【あかし】 and 証拠【しょうこ】 (proof)
Haven't you answered your own question? "Proof" as in "certification" and "proof" as in "evidence" are inherintly very different things, and, so far as I know, that is the difference between 証 and 証拠.

comment Did the modern usage of katakana predate the Americans?
Another thing to keep in mind is that the whole concept that Japan was shutting out foreigners during the so-called "sakoku" period is a very western-centric view. Many historians argue that the real point of that time was to prevent individual warlords and regional powers within Japan from making their own deals with foreigners and importing their own weapons, which could potentially destabilize the nation. It's a big topic, but the point is that Japan was importing foreign ideas before Perry showed up, just in a way the ruling powers tried to keep under tight control.

As "user unknown" says in the answer below, I think I was trying too hard to connect the notification about home robberies with the main text, so maybe it's not so much missing something but trying too hard to add things together. :)

I went left to right on the reading because the punctuation, the ! ended after 気をつけよう, but I see how it could be read the other way. So, bottom line, you're saying it's a haiku?

comment What is an appropriate response to お疲{つか}れ様{さま}です in non-work situations?
Once again someone has come along and downvoted this with no explanation whatsoever. That's the real common practise on JL.
