On May 14th I mentioned an online shop for translators, mainly selling calendars. Today they sent me a spam email:

bq. Damit das Gesamtziel der Förderung unseres Images erreicht und eine ganz andere Art eines Übersetzerportals geschaffen werden kann, braucht es unserer aller Mithilfe. Indem wir das Projekt bekannt machen, es selbst nutzen und unsere KollegInnen dazu anzuregen, sich zu beteiligen und einzubringen. Mit neuen Ideen oder Themen, eigenen Beiträgen, Wünschen oder Produkten. Helfen Sie mit.

The general line is: we must all help so we can create a translator portal for all of us. This is the third such mail I’ve received in recent months, all from different translator companies or groupings emphasizing what we need to do for all of us.

This entry looks better, as I am using two Movable Type plugins, Textile by Brad Choate, and SmartyPants by John Gruber. However, if I tidy up older entries too, the difference will cease to be noticeable. Textile lets me do block quotes easily, and SmartyPants gives me typographic punctuation.
