Oh yeah, I forgot this was in Canada.
I wonder though, I don't think the news story actually specified that she was black.

Moore, who is black, said Kingsoft'* acknowledgment of a mistake does not make her feel better.
Thanks, didn't remember seeing that.

You are by far the biggest smart *** this board has ever seen.

And with the translations, it is always best to have a HUMAN translate cause the computer programs that translate often don't do a really good job. They don't understand context very well and they do not always use the correct word.
Sometimes profane words are very close to the "good" version of a word, depending on if it is used as a noun or verb...

French speakers - you know like with the word "baiser..."

There is the couch buyer with the actual tag. It was discussed that the color is supposed to be Niger-Brown, but the translator accidentally added a extra "g".

Wow....and how many manuals and instructions do you get with produtcs you buy these days have typos? In all honesty, if I were the judge in that case, I'd laugh it right out of the court rooms. Innocent mistake. That'* just what the word happened to be this time....Most times it tthe or something like that....or words that just don't get spaced and letters that don't get capitalized.....

Hey Lady....GET A LIFE.
