Don't even know what you're writing about?

But maybe it makes sense if you translated into simplified Chinese? If I knew what you were talking about, maybe I would make excuses up for not having the time to translate it into Chinese. But we're not there yet.

It's what you see when you click on the "image" icon in the series of icons that are highlighted in pink on the "Add New comment" page...the icons that start with the "B" for bold and then move rightwards...to see what I'm talking about, click on the little picture to the right of the "quote marks" icon..  For some reason, rather than putting a generic image in the space where you would paste an image they put in that random series of Latin phrases you see there.

I found the most amazing website. It lets you generate this stuff to suit many different languages! Here's an Icelandic example:

Quote:

EsÞ et súmmó argúmentum. Vél póstea nöminaÞí et. Duo ut quoð porro, eum decöre albucius insoléns éí, éx qúó nostro löbörtis ðelicatissimi. Animal fæbellas phaedrum an duó, plætonem expéÞénðis cu nec, an veliÞ libris sapientem per. EverÞi probatus vítuperaÞa eúm ex. Saepe voluptæÞibús ei ésÞ.

Mei aútém inciderint cónclúdaÞurque nó. Mea no aliquid ullamcorpér consequúntur, sonet fabulæs no mea, eu ením habemus ðefiniÞíones vel. Ómnesqúe petenÞíum eu his. SóneÞ eúismód quaestio eæ úsu, ðicam graecis té nam. Ius te meliore pertinax, éa múndi ðicænt nostrud per.

Cetero scripÞa eu per, éa ómittam ðetractö abhórreænt eos. Eu minim omniúm posidoniúm his, indocÞum raÞionibus has in. Eú impediÞ eligenði eam, et suæs mælorum iuðicabít his. An récúsæbö saluÞændí cum. Illúm mandamús iracundia ad qui, meis numquæm salútandi vim ex, vívendö volutpat hís id.

And if you read it backwards there are satanic verses encoded.

OK thanks for clarifying with that walk through.

I had seen that block of Latin text there for years and wondered what it would turn into in English.  It ends up sounding like a moderately-damaged computer attempting small talk.
