ghunchu'wI' De'vID je,


the phenomenon of noone actually using klingon on this list, has been
described by other people too, starting decades ago. charghwI' and
krankor have talked about it, from times I wasn't even here. So, go
pin elsewhere, the why-noone-writes/replies-in klingon.


In real life, real people often curse and use offensive phrases, and
if klingon is to be used as a real language, it needs to be used that
way too. If this is a problem for you, then perhaps you should move to
a planet where people do nothing else, than wear klingon t-shirts and
sing all day "may gowron lead the empire".


ghunchu'wi' you wrote, that I don't accept the advice of others.
You're wrong. If it concerns grammar, then I *do* accept it. But I
will not accept, a personal opinion, e.g on transliterating, just
because someone wants to behave as my personal boss.

Unless 'oqranD retires, and the community selects a
successor/successors in his place, I have no obligation of accepting
the choices/personal opinions of others. So, they'll have to satisfy
their ego elsewhere.


the above in klingon:
