I'm a geek who likes to break things so I have something to fix

Superuser:

I got involved with Superuser as I had taken so much from the Stack exchange community that I wanted to start giving back. Queue XKCD

If you're ever looking for me just message me in Root Access I will get back to you :-P

Chinese Language & Usage:

I'm trying to learn the language and as of day 680 the beta is only at 1.5 question a day so they get to suffer through any question I can think of that google cannot solve

@hippietrail then edit the question so it can be read that way easily. I would edit it but I can't work out How to turn this into a acceptable question. I would happily give the question a +1 if it was well constructed.

@hippietrail "answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise." The question concluded the word was valgur and asked How people could accept such filthy words. That is an opinion based question, just because someone has written a rational explanation doesn't change that. I like the question but it's not a Good fit for the site as it's open ended and opinion based.
