Jason! I think, you have just been insulted!
These Russians are getting uppity, aaaaahhhh...
Shura, sorry. I was distracted with educating Mark. Then, there was a sluggish fight with Michael E. in moderators forum, and I am going to turn it into a really nasty big fight this evening.

I absolutley agree! How dare he insuate that I am not up to the task of making him go overboard! I am plenty up to that task, thank you very much. It's just that the sheriffs rarely allow me take it to that level.

We need Petr Igorovich Kurchatov here!
I would love to see how your automatised translators would translate "pokeda"
It's a slang for "bye".
Note my spelling of automatiSed - it's particularly offensive.
Now... "goat from Boston" - I wonder how many people here are from Boston and how many took your... um... words personally.

This thread is too good to be true. Politically correct sheriffs must be sleeping.

I am almost exceeded my limit of smiles so I started a new post
"srazhatsya po lybomy povody to you" -
It means "fight on every occasion" to you -
Now. Sigh. Not sure I should do that... But I believe it's better to be honest.
"goat from Boston" refers to Mark and I must comment that 1) my "naskoki" (I cannot translate better than "attacks" -- admittedly a loosy translation) are somewhat misinterpreted. I can disagree with Mark but I have no reasons so far to disrespect him and far less to insult him. Alex (and not only Alex). I am afraid you misread what he is saying! I said he is "cocky and arrogant" - I was kidding! I do not believe he is! I think it's a dare miscommunication - he is saying "I am getting job offers" from a position "I am no different from you. If I can, you can also" and intends this as encouragement, and what rest of us read is "You, @#$%^& lazy idiots, look - I am Ok, so what is your problem, ah?"
I can be wrong, of course, but this is my interpretation.
The problem is: if you are a MIT graduate, whatever you say will be met with suspicion and interpreted as arrogance.
I wish I was wrong!

Huh? I can't see a substantive difference between the two statements.

True. I would be equally encouraged by both statements

I'm no "Altavista," but here goes:
Hello. Maybe you'll see my post before it gets deleted.
Shura, I understand you're also out of work? For how long?
Margarita, I have to admit that it's a difficult task arguing with you on every point. I follow your posts and have to say, with respect, that you quite skillfully handle questions on XSLT as well as beat up on that jerk from Boston with the fancy degree[1]. I don't even want to write his name -- I start to shake when I read the bastard's comments[2]. Well, I hope this doesn't get deleted too fast. Later.
[1]Literally "the goat from Boston with an elite college education." Translating "goat" as "jerk" might be inflammatory on my part, but I don't think it's escaped anyone's notice that this is a personal insult thing going on here.
[2]Literally "when I read his mongrel comments." We don't insult people in English much anymore calling them "mongrels" or "curs." "Bastard," again, might be slightly more inflammatory than the original, but personal insults are being hurled about here.

Uh, get outa hand really fast when you don't follow it...
First of, my head goes to Michael Matola for a very good translation of the above.
Alex, calm down, attacking Mark will not do anyone any good (for some bizzare reason... :roll: ). He and most of us are in separate Universes. I'd suggest just ignoring his posts if you hate 'em so much.
Yeah, I was unemployed for 11 months. Not literally, I've done some little things over the course. I just got an offer, and start my new job in August; may not be completely satisfied with it and will keep looking, but at least it'll pay the bills. As far as how bad it is, I know a few people, in Philly, NYC, Boston and Toronto, who are or were unemployed at one time or another during last year and a half. And those aren't, what Mark calls, "unqualified" folks, some of them even with CS degrees from Moskovskii Gosudarstvennyi Universitet. Understandably, it might not apply to Mark's "world".
Speaking of Bostonians, I know a girl in Boston who calls her friend's hangout "unemployment parties", because it's mostly unemployed russian programmers
Map, was sort of dark and uncomfortable without your sunny posts. And yeah, Mark needs some education. I was trying to do some wooping myself, but apparently he's got a pretty darng strong skin...
What about "salut", "chao", "byvai zdorov", "davai" and "poka" (all loosely translated as "goodbye")

I must report that on last JR staff meeting we decided to toughen rules and to severe punishment for posting in languages orthogonal to English. From now on, such posts WILL NOT BE DELETED.
Instead, all MD residents will be encouraged to provide translations.
Kidding.
I wouldn't make Alex's offense bigger than it is, I think he expected his post to be promptly deleted and not read by his target. It's like "inner speech", we think "you, @#$%^ idiot!" and say aloud "John, I think you shouldn't have done this..." Alex just needed to vent. :roll: Re-wording old joke "Sign in workplace: if you have nothing to do, plese, do not do it here", we can say: "if you feel need to insult somebody, please, do not do it here"

Map, I think you need to add emoticon to your signature, to qualify it's true meaning
Here's a few good ones:
