Bulgarian doesn't even note emphasis in the writing, and also not the length of the vowels, thus it doesn't have a fully written pronounciation. It is still possible to follow the full set of pronounciation rules in Bulgarian and still read a text completely non-understandable for a native speaker.

There are no languages where grammar and pronounciation rules are completely consistent. Spanish and Indonesian come close with regards to grammar, and Dutch and Czech, when it comes to spelling vs. pronounciation, but there just is no language which is completely consistent. Even artificial languages like Esperanto have their inconsistencies.

I got herpes already at birth. Pray tell me, o wise Anonymous Coward, how I could have possibly avoided it. (Herpes is a STD in just the same sense that the Common Cold is a STD. It can also be transmitted through sexual contact, but this is not their main infection vector.)

I was just browsing my own business mail, and I found that 90% of them don't belong in public, because they are talking about customer installations (information which belongs to the customer, not us) or about internal administration and HR (like courses, oncall schedules, sick leaves, vacations). Only 1% are directly about what I am doing, like solution concepts, scripts or possible configurations. I can imagine that this is not so much different from most other people's business email.

Actually, they don't. There have been situations where a seed company was collecting seeds of traditional crops, selecting the ones with the most marketable potential, patenting and reselling them again and suing the farmers they got the seed from originally from infringing the patent on the seeds and prevailing.

Curse the judges that handed down the verdict and the laws that allowed the company to prevail, but currently there is nothing that prevents a company from doing the same again and again.
