For the love of God, please, I beg you- no more postings of the 'French Government Bans The Term E-Mail' story. There are already several copies up, and we've pulled many more in the past day.

Have mercy on us. I beg thee.

The same goes for the Google WMD story. Uncle!!!

Only you can prevent duplicates- please search before posting

Things have gotten pretty out of hand on duplicates. I counted like 8 nake paintball threads. Saw 4 show up for the Windows bug in the hours after MS announced it.

Search it people.

LMAO - this should be the post of the day. Thank you for the laugh. I especially liked..."For the love of God!"

I could hear the desperation in your voice.

Or a thread debating if Ted Nugent was on pot when he wrote the Bad American article with the help of Carlin and Dennis Miller that shows up when you hit "I Feel Lucky" on Google with "Weapons of Mass Destruction" and has been posted at least five hundred times that we probably should move to chat but instead can have posted to breaking, activism, and every single freakin' state in the blessed U.S. of A?

Now that would be something we need.

BREAKING NEWS..... Did you all see this??? French Government Bans Term 'E-Mail' JAMEY KEATEN Associated Press PARIS - Goodbye "e-mail," the French government says, and hello "courriel" - the term that linguistically sensitive France is now using to refer to electronic mail in official documents. The Culture Ministry has announced a ban on the use of "e-mail" in all government ministries, documents, publications or Web sites, the latest step to stem an incursion of English words into the French lexicon. The ministry's General Commission on Terminology and Neology insists Internet surfers in France are broadly using the term "courrier electronique" (electronic mail) instead of e-mail - a claim some industry experts dispute. "Courriel" is a fusion of the two words. "Evocative, with a very French sound, the word 'courriel' is broadly used in the press and competes advantageously with the borrowed 'mail' in English," the commission has ruled. The move to ban "e-mail" was announced last week after the decision was published in the official government register on June 20. Courriel is a term that has often been used in French-speaking Quebec, the commission said. The 7-year-old commission has links to the Academie Francaise, the prestigious institution that has been one of the top opponents of allowing English terms to seep into French. Some Internet industry experts say the decision is artificial and doesn't reflect reality. "The word 'courriel' is not at all actively used," Marie-Christine Levet, president of French Internet service provider Club Internet, said Friday. "E-mail has sunk in to our values." She said Club Internet wasn't changing the words it uses. "Protecting the language is normal, but e-mail's so assimilated now that no one thinks of it as American," she said. "Courriel would just be a new word to launch." hee hee
