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.

The thing that keeps me from trying to submit something is that I'm not sure I have any real chance of being given the time of day (well, that and that I have nothing of value to say...). Basically, extracting from the conduct of the staff so far, I would expect that, if I submitted anything that wasn't in-line with you guy's opinions and views, it would never get published. If the site's staff are in general unashamed to push their own personal views on thing when they create content, why would I expect them to suddenly become neutral facilitators when I offer a submission?

I don't mean to be rude or ungrateful. I do realize that you guys, and Thom in particular, do a lot of work for free here, and I do appreciate it. It's just that, if you ask, that's why I, for one, don't take your submission request too seriously. If you really want to see more submissions, maybe you should first convince us that you're really, honest-to-God serious and ready to accept them?
