Re: Would you like to have Swiss German as an official language in place of High Germ

Maybe with Swiss German as an official language, there would no longer be any misspellings, and all bad grammar would be somewhat acceptable?

And this insightful question/statement is a reason to dig out a thread that's been inactive for over 6 years?
I suspect that it was a thread resurrection by a spammer and the post was in response to the spam comment given that it doesn't seem to be in response to any of the other posts on that page.
The spam post has been deleted which makes her post seem like nonsense now.

Nope. Just a question on that appears to have been on Iz's mind for a while.

In that case it's just plain weird and more than a little bit random to say the least.
