I regret to announce that there is a glitch in our comment-processing software. For some reason, whenever someone posts an insulting comment in a foreign language (such as, say, calling someone’s mother a
prostitute person of negotiable virtue in French), the comment gets translated — and very poorly.
BarneyG, I’m terribly sorry about any embarrassment you might be suffering. I promise, we’re working on the problem, and we hope to have that comment either restored or deleted as fast as we can.
Currently, though, prospects don’t look good. It might stay that way for a month — or longer.
In the meantime, we’d like to ask everyone — especially BarneyG — to limit their insults to English. We’ll be conducting some behind-the-scenes testing to see just what triggers the glitch, and any extraneous foreign-language comments will only interfere with our efforts.
Thanks again for your patience.
