Didn't know this site censored some words.

Oh man,so you've been added into the naughty list, then right?


Probably, if I wasn't already

(in my defense, it was a word that can also be used to describe a donkey, so there's debate possible over the effectiveness of the censorship)
Because there's a lot of discussion on sqlservercentral.com about donkeys? And you were specifically referring to donkeys?

Given the title of this thread why shouldn't there be a reasonable amount of discussion of donkeys?

Anyway, the only reason that word would be censored is that Americans can't spell (and have, unfortunately, begun to entice other English speaking nations into there silly misspelling of this particular word). In real English the word derived via Goidelic asan from Latin asinus doesn't suffer from having the same spelling as the word derived via Old English (or middle Dutch?) aers from Proto-Germanic *arsoz; neither, in British English, do the two words share the same pronunciation.

It's amazing and rather sad that some dictionaries are edited by people so entranced by American spelling that they incorrectly claim that the latter word is also derived (ultimately) from Latin asinus, presumably in order to account for the strange American spelling.
Somehow one would assume that this particular thread is excluded from any reasonable analysis of anything SQLServerCentral.

Americans are simply word-smithing, evolution at work. Shakespeare will be read as " 'sup, Julie? What you in hangin' in the window for, shorty?" in a few hundred years.


Well, in a few hundred years your sentence will indeed be as archaic as how we see Shakespeare today.

Something over 28 hours since message notification from SQLServer Central last arrived here. This drying up of notifications seems to be happening rather often recently, is there something horribly wrong somewhere in SQL Server Central's mail delivery? Other sites across the world talk to me - just not SQLServerCentral, so I doubt the problem is at this end.
Anyway, I won't go hunting on the website for messages - can catch up when messages get unblocked, I guess (may miss a few if the blocking can lose messages) - too busy to look at recent messages rather than just react to notifications recently.


I don't have any troubles with the notifications. For now.

Considering how quickly American English slang evolves, it already sounds a bit dated. However...I found that sentence hysterically funny (says the English major). I'd love to do a translation like that for Wuthering Heights, mostly because they have to be two of the most pompous, self-involved characters in fiction, so they deserve it. (Maybe I should speak to Jasper Fforde...)
