Do'Ha', naDev jIghItlhtaHvIS, 'elaDya' Hol vIlo'law' pIj 'e' vIHar..
It often seems like, I'm writing in Greek here..

qay'be'.. jIQIjqa'..
no problem.. I'll explain again..

if someone participates at the rttp, he's willing to ask with regards
to *what* he needs to translate, how to proceed, and from which
manuscript to translate. However, if someone is unwilling to
participate, he won't care, and he will follow his own choices.

Perhaps, one day your rttp will be complete; it's possible. But it
will never succeed. And do you know why ? Different parts will be
translated by different people, people who are differently skilled,
people having each one of them different writing style. And likely,
they will be using heretic sources.

So, what will the rttp finally have achieved ? A heterogeneous
passage, likely a heretic one too, which will be useful only in order
to impress beginners at facebook.

'ej Do'Ha'bej ghu'vam..
and this will be unfortunate..

I've never held in high regard such a project, and I never wished to
participate in one. However, unfortunately, if I keep adding my
translation here and in the wiki, unavoidably it will become part of
the rttp. So, I've created my own site, and I'll be posting there my


wI'qIy turwI'Daq, 'ay'mey vImughpu'bogh vIngabmoHpu', 'ej narghqa'
'ay'meyvam 'e' qaSmoH pagh, 'e' vIpoQ.

I've deleted from the wiki the already translated parts, and I ask
that noone restores them.

Because I've chosen this course, I'm sorry. But one thing is certain:
If I didn't act this way, then soon, we'd have the same all over: I'd
write again something with regards to this translation, someone would
become irritated, he'd insult me, I'd react, and we'd all live again
the same situation.

Seemingly/apparently, we're all on the same side here, yet we can't
stop being at each other's throat. This is sad, and I've become quite
fed up by this situation. I've real-life problems to deal with, and
perhaps so do you, so I don't want to quarrel anymore. Someone needs
to actually enjoy his hobby; but if he constantly becomes irritated by
it, then something is seriously fracked up.
