Hahaaaa, on top of writing in roman characters, you also want Seldoff to keep it in a romantic style! Tell me when you want posters to write in baroque style, then I'll be in! (when I fancy, of course)

hehe...one who has a lesser intelligence always betrays himself...

FYI, Romantic is the adjective for things related to Rome, such as the Lastin Alphabet....

So Romantic text was correct...another correct term would have been Romanic, but i like adding the t...

And, also, i happen to enjoy music from both the baroque and the Romantic era.

I was under the impression Romantic would not apply to English, as English is a Germanic language. Romantic describes such languages as Latin, French, and Spanish.

The name "romantic" itself comes from the term "romance" which is a prose or poetic heroic narrative originating in medieval literature and romantic literature.

"Romance" was also the word used during the middle ages for the "vulgar" languages that were derived from Latin, and would later become French, Spanish, and so on. Above quote seems to be circling a bit, though...

You're very talented, Nick. Welcome here ! (said the newcomer to another)

I'm looking forward to joining in the discussions here, and perhaps contributing some iconography...

Toutes d'excellentes citations, Jean. Mais peux-tu nous éclairer sur celle-ci?

______________

"Insult should be a byproduct of a reasoned argument rather than a goal in itself. The journalist and cartoonist's mission is to confront insanity with honesty. Those who attack their work, whether Protestant, Catholic, Jewish or Muslim, experience comic or satirical irreverence as hostility and hate, when all it is, really, is irreverence. And if mob rule silences cartoonists and journalists, who's next?"

Plus i like pirates :fsm_yarr:

That's because the Cyrillic alphabet was invented to write Slavic characters with Greek (or looking like Greek) alphabet :)

And pitiful Christians may still be mistaken!

unless I'm mistaken - I hardly know Russian, used some translators and Russian Wikipedia to solve this ;)
