Please refrain from such off-topic posts.  Top-posting is the only way
almost all new and potential users have any knowledge of or experience
with so they tend to assume that any non-top-posts are empty, either
deliberately or accidentally.  The nettiqutte link is so out-dated
that it pre-dates hand-helds (phones, tablets and slates) which
allegedly now accounts for around 80% of computer usage and none of
which allow for anything other than top-posting.  Until you are able
to convince the majority of the makers of hand-helds to allow people
to do things the old ways it seems unfair to exclude people from such
a large potential (yet untapped) market.  It might be easier to just
return us to three decades before the end of the last century, and
there is a LOT of appeal in that - except that we would then have to
live through the 80's again!

Anyway, Charles' post is going off-topic into some ancient fantasy.

Hello Anne-ology,

I'm top-posting on this thread with purpose. You are on the localization
(l10n) mailing list. Do you even understand the conversation you have jumped
into? It is a technical exchange, not people who do not know what they type.

Besides that, people on mailing lists and elsewhere on the Internet rely on
a common set of rules and customs that are considered useful and even polite
since about the late seventies. It's called the Netiquette:  Top posting, not replying
inline of the messages like you do are things that confuse or bother
posters. Do you think you could make an effort in following these standards,
at least when posting on our mailing lists?

Thank you,

Well, whoever typed this must have meant to type whatever would send
the message  ;-)

       If this typist had edited his message before posting, then he could
have corrected the error;
          but, alas, editing seems to be an out-dated idea in this world
ever increasing speed to accomplish whatever even though oftentimes taking
the time to edit saves time in the long-run by avoiding having to redo the
project to correct the errors.

Subject: [libreoffice-l10n] "Hit apply to update" string
To: L10n <>


could anyone explain meaning of this new string in 5.1?

"Hit apply to update"
ID: rEEs5

I suppose it is a placeholder text for user agent information (Tools -
Options - LibreOffice - Online updates) which appears when the user agent
is changed (although I don't know how it can be changed) - but there is no
"apply" to be hit...
