In the News A few months ago, I wrote an article about comments, in which I said, among others things, that Twitter can never replace comments because not only is it effectively a one-to-one communication channel, Twitter messages are also far too short to foster any form of coherent conversation. Over the weekend, a silly link-bait story illustrated my point perfectly.

Dutch people write 'u' instead of you too. (http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/u#Dutch) Are you calling us stupid?

No we don't usually we say (and type) 'Jij', 'U' is reserved for when you want to be polite (also it is not pronounced as you anyway).
