Right, it obviously "the pompous English majority" conspiring here because you received a prank from every English speaker on the list.

If the list were in Spanish so every immature youth in Latin America with too much time on their hands could access it without scholarship, you would be unable to spare the rest of us on Dec 28.  Follow David's example and ignore those who actually choose to waste your time and spare the rest of us your stereotyped rant.
