Hm, you always b***h about my Irish. Remember, I'm the one that had Eirinn go bragh in my siggy a long time ago.

No.
Because quite frankly this happens so often that you lot blur together into an indistinct homogenous blend of cutlurally insensitive jackass that I don't remember the individuals anymore.
Not until they get better.
And then, and only then, do they become actual people to me.
There are so many ignorant asshats proclaiming themselves experts, implicitly or explicitly, that I can't be expected to keep track.
Even the sig reference doesn't narrow it down.
Do you have any idea how often that trite, mistranslated garbage text gets trotted about by wanna-be ra heads or faux-traditionalists? Almost none of whom speak Irish and those who do justify it with "yes, it's incorrect Irish, but we're using poetic licence".

I never claimed to be an expert. I like Irish, my family were from Ireland and so I study the language and culture. There something wrong with that buddy?

I'm not a traditionalist faux or otherwise, I just like the language. I like many languages, I'm a linguist at heart. I never justified it, when you corrected me I corrected the sig, in fact I took it out entirely didn't I?

Actually, I was just providing context for why I don't remember you. Not implying that you were one of the faux traditionalists or even wanna-be ra heads.

Ah, I see. Well, I'm glad then. I happen to enjoy the Irish language, so I'm sorry it upsets you. If Irish was offered as a course here in High school or college I'd take it, but it isn't sadly. So I've had to teach myself.

The U.S. Central California to be specific. I know, I know, I'm an "arrogant" American that should just give up. Well, we aren't all arrogant, I admit when I'm wrong.

Thank you very much! If I ever make a trip to San Francisco I'll be sure to coordinate it! I appreciate it!
