Oh yeah, just typical: a typo in any other language is just a typo,
but Esperanto is supposedly so easy that it ought to eliminate such
errors, and hey presto!, we have zero-tolerance. ;-)

Actually, the ideas behind Esperanto and those behind the Internet as
such are very similar indeed, so I find it very odd that many people,
especially Americans, speak so fondly of the 'Net and the many things
it makes possible, but they deplore the notion that English should not
be the primary language of the 'Net. Utter hypocracy, if you ask me.
