Re: Policy: Use of foreign words/terms in posts

Quote:
While I agree with your intent I think policy rather than guideline is a bit strict. And anyway you contradicted it by using Röstigraben incorrectly. You see everyone knows to what this refers and if they do not can google it. However if you put in potato ditch which is the literal translation then no-one has a clue and they can't really google it without knowing what it is... Or am I wrong?
My reference to "potato ditch" was actually a joke - I'm aware of how ridiculous it sounds. You may remember we discussed it earlier on this thread.

So if we call it a guideline then you guys will follow it - but if we call it a policy then you'll get all upset? Is that an accurate way to sum it up!
