I'm actually kind of curious to see the "moon rune" comment chain mentioned. Someone is actually calling non-latin languages "moon runes"? Seems humorously innocent if anything at all.

The part I was responding to:

>If you need to worry about junk like accented characters or moon runes (Chinese/Japanese/Korean characters), it means you're big enough to afford to hire someone specifically to address the problem.

My response, which is only visible to me:

> > moon runes (Chinese/Japanese/Korean characters)

> Really? You can make your economic point without making fun of several of the world's most commonly spoken languages and the people who speak them
