No lo comprendo. Este loco es para hablar de palabras. Porque todo este?

I don't understand. This place is for talking about words. Why all this?

The original poster may be a loco (crazy person), but this place is a lugar or sitio. :P

I recommend never replying to garbage. Just send a PM to the Doc and he can delete it if he deems it inappropriate.

I did so on this and the other two, and lo!, they have disappeared.
Life is like playing chess with chessmen who each have thoughts and feelings and motives of their own.

About a year ago, when I was but a mere Junior Lexiterian, I meekly suggested a voluntary protocol by which

those who toss out Latin phrases should include thereafter the English translation


so that the (undoubtedly erudite) and pithy comment could be understood by all.

This seemed to be an idea whose time had come, as I've subsequently seen this courteous act performed several times.

Not to beat a dead horse, but to me carrying on entire conversations in a language other than English in the Alpha Agora postings is, frankly, closer to a "pith on you" attitude of pomposity than I care to be.

And if one MUST fling about with the use of a second language to distinguish oneself from the hunyock masses--getting the point across with seemingly no regard for those who may feel like they're getting stabbed with it--shouldn't it be the one which is arguably the one spoken by more people than any other: Chinese?

Or as they say in my imperfectly-remembered Russian:

Vote dasada! Dahzha idti tuda nehochita! (How annoying! One doesn't feel like (going there) again
"The time has come," the Walrus said, "to talk of many things...."
