Description Amgine 2006-05-06 18:06:25 UTC
OTRS complaint regarding the current text which may be interpreted as "damn
kyrghzy link", prefer simple noun for the language. Confirmed with translators,
external sites <http://www.omniglot.com/writing/kirghiz.htm>.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2006-05-06 19:21:11 UTC
Huh? Using latin script adds the meanings of "damn" and "link" to 
a simple noun?
Comment 2 Amgine 2006-05-06 19:49:49 UTC
Well, it's not latin script, but see for yourself:

Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2006-05-06 19:59:37 UTC
In what universe is 'Kırgızca' not latin script? Those are 
clearly Latin letters (including the Turkish dotless i).

Not all of us are in the OTRS cabal.
Comment 5 Brion Vibber 2006-05-06 20:23:40 UTC
The super-secret OTRS message appears to be simply complaining 
that the word is written in Latin script, where Cyrillic would be 
preferable.

At one point the writer says "god damn" apparently to express his 
anger and surprise that the wrong orthography is used. The text 
doesn't say "damn kyrghzy link" or anything like it.
Comment 6 Brion Vibber 2006-05-06 20:30:48 UTC
Fixed in r14105.
