[Foundation-l] On certain shallow, American-centered, foolish software initiatives backed by WMF

One problem is that the word "Love" is used quite differently in the
German language. Even in Great Britain.

Love as a term is used in English in a fully inflated notion of flooding.

I have no idea what lovers say to each other in the U.S. when it comes
to really love.

Maybe they just grunt at each other only.

Please teach me U.S.-american social behavior.

The expression "Wikilove" will trigger only incomprehension and headshaking.
