    May be you could cite directly the discussion page on German Wikipedia (for
    the esszett character) where the topic is also hot, but correctly targeted
    in its own topic, this could save most of the discussions in this list.

    http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diskussion:%C3%9F

    And it gives more exposure there to the general public that can find and
    document many other references there.
