Question please: in transhumanist functions in general, I perceive a curious
lack of participation by the French.  On typical lists, I see plenty of
Italian, Gene and his friends are German, Anders and his friends from
Sweden, plenty of Brits, Australians, yanks, Brazilians, other South
Americans, Spanish, Portugese, other Europeans, but few French.  Why?  Is
anyone here living in France or from there?
There is a reason I ask.  Today I saw some teen internet chatter with its
usual phonetic spellings (How R U, etc) and it made me think of a curious
French habit: they keep on spelling after they finished talking.  So when
French youth banter on the internet, do they slaughter the French spellings
even worse than the English typing people?
