eh? "best copy for all cultures"? WHAT THE FRIKKIN BLOODY BLUE BLAZES YOU YABBERING ABOUT??? Most AuxLang fanatics like Zhong are ignorantly blind to the cultural diversity of the world much less the linguistic diversity. LMAO ack ack ::smoker's cough:: Scholar-Wannabe Zhong, you are an absurdly hilarious embarassment to the Chinese people (well, with about 1 billion-plus Chinese, I guess there hasta be a "few hundred thousand" in the very shallowest end of the gene pool... where is the freekin' chlorine???) Doctor Zhangster's diagnosis: This fruitloop has a serious case of AuxLang authoritarianism disease. It's so bad that it is terminal. czHANg, lookin for a means to block this humanoid-waste-of-time&space's emails from this point forward (AOL is not very adaptable in this regard, so I might hafta just do it manually...)
