Anybody else think this new trajectory is a bit too steep?

For most (American) English speakers, that's just the long-E sound, but with rounded lips. (And the first link is the short-I sound, also rounded.) It might still be hard for them to pronounce it, but easy enough to describe.
Unless stated otherwise, I do not care whether a statement, by itself, constitutes a persuasive political argument. I care whether it's true.

OKay, not to bight back at you, but there have now been 8 posts saying this same dang thing... All I have to say be: READ THE WIKI!!!


Yeah, 8 posts asking the question, but no answers. Kinda frustruating. (And this thr​ead being wh​at it i​s, reading back through it for context and answers i​sn't necessarily an option.)

To bugstomper and anyone else wh​o i​s wondering: someone h​as installed a fil​ter which i​s inducing the "pira​te speak". Kinda annoying, if you ask me, but evidently there ar​e plenty of peo​ple (including the moder​ators!) wh​o still th​ink it​'s cute. Apparently it applies to quotes more than original posts.

One of the transformations i​s "ti​me" → "Things that be on my side for 600, Alex", and that accounts for the change in thr​ead title, too.

(And, of course, meta-games like this make meta-conversations increasingly ludicrous, if not downright impossible. By the ti​me you see this, it may say "One of the transformations i​s 'Things that be on my side for 600, Alex' → 'Things that be on my side for 600, Alex'", and you'll say, "Huh?")

It is my understanding that it is the moderators themselves who installed the filter -- as part of the RECKONING viewtopic.php?f=7&t=101106.

Ha you're right. If I say "eeeeeeee" (english) and then round my lips while doing it, it changes to "yyyy". (Or üüüüü, or uuuuu dependend on language).

They give Scottish 'food' as example. I should remember that, lots of people know that from movies.

Which is why learning the IPA would be handy for these discussions; even if you don't paste in characters from it, you can notice things like how the vowels listed next to each other are in rounded/unrounded pairs, and that /i/ is approximately long-E.
Unless stated otherwise, I do not care whether a statement, by itself, constitutes a persuasive political argument. I care whether it's true.

Wow, the forum only added one page while I was reading the 30 I had coma'd through. Has the Reckoning slowed things down or has my sense of things-that-are-on-my-side changed?

Well, I've read about the Reckoning, checked aubronwood for what I missed in the 1fpn (frames per newpix) video, and figured out how to read the posts here. Unfortunately the implementation of the Reckoning changed and lacing my post-coma semenated coffee with LSD means that now only the quoted sections of posts make sense.

At least I can Preview my words before posting them so I can understand what I am about to say.

Oh well.

Can we get some prediction of where that projectile will hit?
