Dear Monseiur (guessing),

Any language barrier here is surely mine. I would enjoy thanking you for 
the courtesy of your reply, but you do not appear to be talking to _me_. 
You are exclusively replying to my quote of the ICANN CEO, supplied to 
others in a request for information. I don't know if he monitors here, but 
I am a bystander to what you are saying to him. Your semi-eloquent sarcasm 
looks to me like you might be trying to make fun of his language, which 
seems like a bit of a dick move, if so.

Other than that, to make heads or tails of your Email is unpossible to me. 
You appear to be talking in some sort of code and so I am incapable of
addressing your comments directly. My bad.

John Springer
only me
