Features, Office In the comments on our editorial about language purism and the Psystar case, it became quite clear that language is a subject almost everyone has an opinion on - not odd if you consider that language is at the very centre of what makes us "human". Since this appears to be a popular subject, let's talk about the influence computing has had on two very minor aspects of the Dutch language.

Thanks for replying Jerk,

is that really your name? How unfortunate, must have been awful for you at school.

I knew someone at school. Wayne, Wayne Kerr. Maybe he is a cousin of yours, no?

You're quite welcome. But your grammar needs some work. What you think you've read would have been written:

Sincerely, Jerk.

...but alas, we seem to have long departed from intelligent decorum some time ago. So in the words of Barney Frank:

"Trying to have a conversation with you would be like trying to argue with a dining room table... I have no interest in doing it."

Enjoy your Internet, it's a lovely gift from Amerika!
