    The French government does this all the time with their l'Academie française and all. Before this, there were other words to be used for e-mail. It doesn't matter too much; the ordinary French person rarely cares about diluting the purity of the French language with English words and such. This only applies to official government stuff. Language is one area where certain nationalistically minded French people tend to become slightly fascistic.

    This quirk is perfectly pardonable (the German and Spanish languages have similar purity institutions, by the way) because the French had a lot of guts to stand up to President Bush's selfish act of imperialism in the United Nations Security Council, and they knew ahead of time Bush would penalize them for it. We can only hope France will defend its principles more vigorously when President Bush makes his next assault against international law.

    Oh God. Unregd just tried to turn this into Bush-bash 3432.

    Someone close this before the insanity starts.
    Away.

    Because then I wouldn't be Unreg[istere]d.

    And I did not intend my previous post as "Bush-bash 3432." I am merely stating the shortcoming of the current administration in regards to diplomacy and international law. I believe you were implying that their act of defiance in the Security Council was as stupid as this. I would have to disagree with every fiber of my body.

    The French have contributed throughout history. France has produced innumerable writers, artists, and philosophers. More recently, France has worked to build an international system of cooperation that the Bush administration has unilaterally backed the United States out of.

    Yup, the French have been AWESOME throughout history.

    30 Year's War.
    Franco-Prussian War
    French Revolution (they lost against themselves)
    World War I
    World War II
    to list a few

    You could say that there was Napoleon, but he was from Corsica, and they still managed to lose. I think we can also blame those retarded beret things on the French.

    I wasn't referring to the Security Counsel. I was referring to what I just said - they suck at fighting.
    Away.

    they even suck at fighting themselves. They should all chuck escargot at the opponents. That'd scare 'em off :P

    I'm all for a reincarnation of Robespierre. It would do their nation good.
    Away.

    Oh come on... The US has done plenty of things that are on the order of "just plain stupid"... petty little laws like this. No one really cares about them.
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.
