Sinnnaturai Srivas, stop this rhetoric right now. This is the
Universal Character Set. It is one of our species' greatest
achievements and those of us who are privileged to participate in
contributing to its development recognize it as such.
Your suggestion that any one of us has "intent to oppress" the Tamil
language or people is vile, and it is wrong, and I cannot allow it to
pass without comment.
Character names once standardized CANNOT BE CHANGED. They cannot be
changed. They cannot be changed. This is a rule of the International
Given those parameters, you must cease to make the attacks and
complaints you are making. They embarrass you, and insult us.
We will review the text referring to this character to ensure that it
is annotated appropriately and with sensitivity. We will not change
the character name (because the character name CANNOT BE CHANGED).
