This just reflects your experience of only speaking english, to most of the world their native language is not and edge case.



Also not using non-ASCII typography, emoji, etc. I’m glad that emoji have become popular in the US since that’s dramatically decreased the time before a text processing system gets non-ASCII input from English-native users. Doubly useful, they’re outside the BMP and flush out partial Unicode support, too, like old MySQL installs using utf8mb3.

Excuse me, I don't exclusively deal in 7-bit ASCII characters just because I happen to speak English, which isn't the only language I speak either.
