If you find this question unsuitable for the site, feel free to delete it. I am not okay with rephrasing question to mean something completely different.

@con5013d, but that was not the question I had.

@sawa, see my last comment. As I said, I came across the saying when reading a translated manga. The translation is not by me. If it's a factual error, it's someone else's. So imo the tag is unwarranted. However if community reaches a consensus that such a tag is necessary, I don't mind having it put up on this thread.

By the way, I had no idea if the Japanese equivalent of the saying had the word 灯台. As you can see in the "reference" link, I came across it while reading a translated manga, and asked this question out of curiosity.

@sawa, (1) As Tsuyoshi said above, "typo" does not mean what you think it does. There are no typoes in my question, and if there were any, someone or myself would remove them, making a note in edit summary. (2) See 1. I am rolling back the edit again. (3) I made a comment saying what I said in 1. After I revisited this thread, the comment was gone. A moderator might have deleted it, or maybe it was an interface error which showed the comment to be committed when it wasn't. In any case, apologies for that one. For everything else, I stand by what I said.

@Sawa, please do not make absurd edits. And deleting comments is a questionable netiquette.
