Patricia came to the site using Google Translator and, as the top-frame is removed, was unaware that, actually, the community is English-speaking.

Ahahahahahaha! What a hilarious misunderstanding. But Google Translate does that to you, I have seen people assume the exact same thing. – Pëkka Aug 31 '10 at 12:48
    
well this is not really a feature request is it... – waffles Aug 31 '10 at 13:01

unless its: "feature request: fix the Internets" – waffles Aug 31 '10 at 13:01
    
@waffles I suppose it's a feature request to not break iframes for sites like Google Translate – Yi Jiang Aug 31 '10 at 13:05
    
@Yij, then it needs to be re-written – juanformoso Aug 31 '10 at 13:06
    
@waffles "fix the internets!" hahaha ;) – Frankie Aug 31 '10 at 13:07

Weird the way it translates vote counts to spelled-out words – Benjol Aug 31 '10 at 13:07
    
@Yi, I guess we could do that, but then again is it worth the effort of maintaining a whitelist, javascript hacks and so on for something that happens once or twice a year? – waffles Aug 31 '10 at 13:10
    
@wafles♦: shouldn't you have written @Yij, you know, first three letters? – Tobias Kienzler Aug 31 '10 at 13:27

@Tobias Kienzler: Actually, that one is the dupe (same user, different SO question). Didn't think of searching for "Patricia" before I posted that :) – Piskvor Aug 31 '10 at 13:47
    
@Piskvor: But yours is more informative, dupes do not necessarily qualify as such by being second – Tobias Kienzler Aug 31 '10 at 13:58

I really should do this sometimes... some of the translations are hilarious for the Chinese one. For instance, you're called 松饼, which is correct, and [always-friday-in-iceland] turns into 一直到星期五在冰, which is... less correct – Yi Jiang Aug 31 '10 at 13:28
