English is a naturally ambiguous language

What an odd thing to say. It's not any more or less ambiguous than almost any other language.

You do, however, need to apply a modicum of effort to make sure that whatever word slop you just barfed on the page is readable to others. Slashdot "editors" notoriously refuse to do so, though.

This mission will put a new spotlight on Pluto and its âoedwarf planetâ status, potentially highlighting its current classification as a woefully inadequate description of such a dynamic and interesting binary system.

Ok, so it's a "binary dwarf planet" - can we tone down the prose now?
