Another RTÉ oddity

The website is running a poll on whether the Irish language is being neglected. In one of those hang-you-head-in-your-hands moments, the poll — which is normally a fairly irreverent thing — doesn’t allow the use of a fada. So becomes ta, all under the correct RTÉ.ie logo. Amusingly though, someone in the company’s web team has edited the code so it reads Ta (an poll software seo, nach gceadaionn fada a usaid, san aireamh). That’s “this poll software doesn’t allow the use/inclusion of sínte fada“. Amusing to me, perhaps, but clearly not to you. I have failed you again, dear reader.
