This thread was clearly identified as a technical discussion about the
CLDR, which is not horribly off topic.
If we really want to discuss this, I could point that dismissing
Satanism because some Satanists are Nazis is a little unfair,
considering the fact that Nazism is fundamentally a Christian
movement. Of course, anti-Semitism in Christianity runs a lot deeper
than Nazism. This "philosophic illness", as you deem it, at its heart,
stands in opposition to the idea that we can criticize ideas without
understanding them, just because we don't believe them.
The major "philosophic illness" I see is the one that leads people to
call on tolerance when it supports their beliefs where they would
ignore it elsewhere. Like complaining about people using Happy
Holidays instead of Merry Christmas when Christmas is still a week
