That's cute, but [YAEPT WARNING] merging"wear" (rhymes with "hair") with "we're" (rhymes with "here") is a bit counterintuitive over thisaway. As for Esperanto spelling reform, did nobody notice the "j/k" (just kidding) on the original responder's post? Man, it takes nothing to get you guys going. :) -- Mark J. Reed <markjreed@...>
