Maori is one of three official languages of Aotearoa  

 

 

 



Welsh is one of the official languages of the UK but news readers don't introduce themselves in it other than on Welsh language programs because official or not it's a minority language.

No person I've met in New Zealand speaks Maori other than odds and sods or as a joke like "tin of cocoa" so whilst it may be official it certainly isn't in common use by most New Zealanders.

 

 

 

UK's policy on regional languages and dialects has little or no relevance to the situation in NZ.

 

 

 

I find your objection to the very limited use of Te Reo in public broadcasting rather intolerant, trivial, and ignorant - so that I needed to provide you with the translation.  If you did in fact know what it meant but were trolling, then I guess I'd have to add that to my list of something that "really annoys me" as being an example of pointless trouble-making.

 

 

 

It's surely not too hard to learn how to introduce yourself - or understand someone introducing themselves in Maori. 

 

 

 

 

 



Can't see any particular need nor much likelihood anyone I meet will do so.

 

 

 

Te Reo Māori enriches our culture and enriches the user, try it you may just like it.

Politicians who make statements such as the one quoted below, which when analysed are in fact not sentences in English merely a string of buzzwords and/or illogically grouped phrases.

 

"My understanding is that as we've got the funding that pushes the button for everybody and so we need to make sure that you do know what is going to happen and I imagine that's going to come along before too long."

 



 

That was 100% pure English.

Threads on drugs where the topic is already being covered in an existing thread where everyone says the exact same things!

Don't look at me. I didn't start it.

 

Anyway, it wasn't a thread on drugs but a thread on whether drug policy would influence voting behaviour. That is a legitimate subject. The thread just drifted, as these often do.

Posts on this thread, somewhat disingenuous I believe, using a broad brush to trivialise or ridicule opposing opinion on a main thread.

I drift a bit on my meds but that is OK unless I am driving tongue-out

Getting a new automated email from mail administrator (767 bytes in size) every minute telling me that "Your ClearNet Mailbox Size Is Approaching Its Limit"

 

That's gonna be self forfilling before long.

That's worse than getting daily reminders my password will be expiring in the next 14 days.

Just an idea, change it the first day and don't worry about it nagging you?

Have you had to change your password monthly? That makes it a new password every 2 weeks. Thankfully there are postit notes ;-)

Passwords.

 

Don't use the same password for things.

 

But you can't access them without one.

 

And you need about 150...! But none can be the same. 

 

And you can't write them down.

 

And none of the systems supposed to assist with this work 100%.

Bought a box of scorched almonds. Got them home and realised that they're dark chocolate. Not only did I not realise that they existed, but Nestle has decided to give them exactly the same box design as the normal milk chocolate ones.
