    Oh, stop, stop, stop, stop, stop.....

    I wrote some words in Klingon. I wrote them in the Latin script. John
    observed that this was more proof that Klingon was conventionally
    written in the Latin script, which it is. It is not conventionally
    written in the pIqaD. That's why pIqaD has not been encoded in the
    Unicode Standard. Enthusiasts use it decoratively; that's why it was
    given a CSUR encodinng.

    It's embarrassing to see someone going to such lengths to show what
    an expert he is about this when he is just utterly wrong.
