I saw this line post my comment as I thought it is going to be poll. Well, it is the poll, but for who ? Him, personally ?
These results strike me as ridiculously useless, but Intelligent Life got over 11,000 responses to this poll, so I’m going to do a poll too, and hopefully all those outraged Esperanto lovers will bring plenty of traffic to this blog, and send me hate mail in Esperanto, or worse, carefully crafted and thoughtful essays on the value and importance of Esperanto, which is much more annoying.
Till now, many people still doubt about Esperanto. Well, the UNESCO must be a useless body in the world as the recognition and recommendation of this world body are not being respected by the many in the world. Is UNESCO only a rubber-stamp organisation?
In his reply to the comment:
I’ve been in the business for 20 years, and provide translation services in over 150 languages, translating an average about 90 different languages to and from English in a year. I have yet to see a request for Esperanto.
He is kind of boosting, should the Esperantists boycott his translation work?
Now, it is time for the Esperantists business persons to list the requirement of working in his/her company. Language requirement, Esperanto preferred.
This is how the Malaysian investors, whether they are from Britian, French, German or Japan would highlight that. Thus, this pressurise the Malaysians to believe that English in important. I beliveve there are many Esperantist investors in the world. Unfortunately, they don' t have the gut to do that even in their home lands.
But these Esperantists keep going and shouting for the good of Esperanto.
Action speaks louder than words.
