How does this make one's opinion any less relevant? I think the fact that  
you are coming across in this thread as closed-minded, bigoted, and  
uninformed gives everyone plenty of right to accuse you of trolling. Being  
aggressive about it doesn't help.

Yes, Unicode is a hack, but it's a hack necessitated by the prevalence  
(and naivete) of ASCII. If you're advocating something as absurd as  
standardizing on a universal, simple language, how about an almost equally  
ridiculous proposal: why don't we break backwards-compatibility with ASCII?
