I'm going to make this a rule today...

And I'm NOT going to update the TOS, for it obvious that these forums are presented in American English, not codes or any other languages.

It shall be known from here going forward, that any post whether it be an article, phrase, quote, etc., that is posted in a foreign language or code--as a common courtesy to all the members of these forums that all foreign content shall be translated or referenced accurately by the owner of the post.

Any post in the forums that are not in English without accurate translation or reference will be reviewed and appropriate actions will be taken.

We are here to learn, but not to assume or to guess about foreign content. It makes the job difficult for our moderator to know when a post in a foreign language is offensive or not. And since these forums are hosted in English, the content of post should be in English, so that the majority of our readers can get a fair understanding of what has been posted. So please be considerate to other members in the forums when posting your messages.

Thank you.

There's some non-english remarks about and it has been made bluntly clear to me on more than one occasion, by more than one mod that this forum is English only, period. Evie's question deserves an answer, period.

That's an online translator
by JP Bill / May 22, 2006 12:12 AM PDT

now enter your ''giberish'' (is that an English word?) and provide a link to the translation that shows the translation from Russian to English.

And I don't consider your ''answer'' an answer.

I expect either silence or another ''sidestep'' from you.
