I can't remember quite how, but today I came across the German word Sprachmittler, where 'mittel' is a means or medium. And suddenly the idea of 'rendering' or even (gods forbid) 'translating' something seems happily distant, and now I know myself to be a 'language mediator' :> MinorProphet (talk) 01:21, 21 October 2017 (UTC)

I randomly came across this and just couldn't resist...[edit]

H. E. Porter was Harold Everett Porter (19 September 1887 — 21 June 1936). He was an author of plays, verse, novels and short stories, who often wrote under the pen name of Holworthy Hall, a dormitory for 1st-year students at Harvard. Source: KIHM (23 September 2009). "Holworthy Hall". Skaneateles / The character and characters of a lakeside village. Retrieved 4 March 2016.

Well, I used the words 'assholes' and 'wankers' to define the editors whose combined efforts resulted the almost fact-free entry on List of dates for Easter#Latest Easter. Fail, I imagine.
