Have you seen this before? Jun 2

QHE,

我不知哪里发此帖合适,所以借用一下您的《四合院》,先谢过!

大家好,

我今天发帖时收到 ProZ 网上自动弹出来的“提醒”文如下:
【Icon of a loudspeaker】:
Can you be succinct? This thread is meant to be "inclusive".
Number of times you have posted so far in this thread: 48

我想问大家发帖时是否也看到过这类通告(这是我第一次看到)。叫得好听点这是个“reminder”,叫得难听点这就是“warning”.

使我纳闷的有以下几点:
1—这种通告是有选择性的呢,还是发帖积极的人都会收到?
2—Pro的人气大不如前,此举为何?这不是叫人家少发言吗!
3—如果是提醒发言人别跑题,哪应该说:Please stay on topic, 但要求人“be succinct”是嫌人家太啰嗦。我想自己以往发言作风还算简洁,再怎么个“succinct”就要折煞我也了。
4—如果是因为我们这几个经常发言的人太霸道,而导致论坛其他同行不愿意露面;如是这样,网站的工作人员可以给他们认为出格的几位发去个人邮件提醒一下。或者更有效的提醒方式是自动弹出一个愤青头像来,喊着:“Just Shut Up!” 保证再积极的发言人也写不下去了。
5—查看一下别的语种发帖的活跃程度,大致结果如下:

《话语最多前十名》 (语种+ 帖子总页数 as of early summer 2018):
Top 10 of the most talktive language-groups on ProZ (Non-English Forums) :

#1
Language = Italian
Forum pages = 159
#2
Language = Spanish
Forum pages = 138
#3
Language = French
Forum pages = 135
#4
Language = German
Forum pages = 105
#5
Language = Russian
Forum pages = 67
#6
Language = Polish
Forum pages = 62
#7
Language = Chinese
Forum pages = 53
#8
Language = Romanian
Forum pages = 40
#9
Language = Turkish
Forum pages = 30
#10
Language = Portuguese
Forum pages = 26

意大利人最热情,发帖也可见三分。话说回来,像我们中文论坛那样楼台建筑得如此高的,别的语种不多,中文论坛的 First post was by Libin PhD dated 10 Mar 2002,and our longest thread is 唱歌吧...(Sing, Sing a Song) with 3,254 replies, most probably the longest there is of all posts. 有道是:“高处不胜寒哪!”

The "inclusive" option Jun 3

David,

你太客气了,我也是刚刚才看到大喇叭的。icon_wink.gif 扫了一下 ProZ 论坛,估计与下面那两个 Henry Dotterer 的帖子有关:



Topic: A translator you know to be good in "IT" says they are also good in "legal". Is it probably true?

Henry Dotterer wrote:


Just for fun, I am using the "inclusive" format for this posting. This is a format that we have had since 2004, I think (it was called "focus"), but that has only been used about ten times. Basically, in the interest of making it easy for a large number of people to participate in a discussion and be heard, the number and length of postings is limited.

Henry Dotterer wrote:

The "inclusive" option is now available to everyone. You'll see it when posting a new topic.






P.S. 中文论坛已经很精简了; 你写的诗更是浓缩精炼。

What a Pity! Jun 3

《“海天佛国”待超度,悔意至今可有过?》

本来蛮好的一块石头,看上去有点像个猪八戒。
给他这么一写,连猪八戒也被破相了。
作孽啊!

我曾两渡普陀岛,一上岛便可看到这块石头,却不知其耗费了纳税人多少两黄金:



但过不久我就发现,这块石头上的题字竟然是盗版。正版在此:



这位题字者侯继高何许人也?我上网查了一下,发现他竟然是我祖籍松江县(现上海市金山县)人氏,乃明朝抗倭名将浙江总兵。侯继高文武双全,“也是一位有造诣的书法家,在嵊泗枸杞岛题写过海山奇观,在普陀山题写过白华山、磐陀石、海天佛国等题字,笔力苍劲,用墨饱满。尤其是题刻在香云路旁的“海天佛国”,意境深长,从此普陀山以海天佛国之名,名扬四海”。

“还自以为是康熙” 6 May

这个图“呕德”图森破自称是无神论者,却十分迷信,是无神论者中烧香拜佛、许愿还愿最勤的一个。中国佛教四大圣地,都有他遗下的“墨宝”。他一去普陀山,岛上就戒严,不准老百姓游览。岛上最大的寺庙普济禅寺为他打开正门大门,让他从那扇本来只为皇帝才打开的大门进去。

三 杯 清 酒 祭 虎 子。

The Calligraphy of the Manchu Emperors Jun 4

《清朝皇帝的字》

原本想借Steve 提供的链接调侃一番北大校长们的书法,结果帖子写了一半,人家找上门来了。真是说曹操,曹操就到。还不能翻成英文,怕有骂人之嫌。那么就说皇帝吧,象国内的文艺界一样,古装戏皇帝妃子这类的随便乱编也没人在乎,只是娱乐。

大约十年前,我翻译到一篇文章,讲清朝皇帝的汉文化功底。称他们是“儒雅天子”;当然文章也提到,清兵入关后,全力学汉文化是为了维持江山社稷之稳固。满州人文化上的汉化果然有效,随即迎来了康乾盛世,历康熙(1654-1722)、雍正(1687-1735)、乾隆(1711-1796)三朝,长达一百三十多年。

清朝有作为的皇帝,“儒雅”未必,但写的字确实都不错,因为他们经常要亲自批奏折的。在我看来论书法,康熙尤佳,乾隆稍逊。雍正的字锋芒毕露,却无王者风范。

这是康熙的字:
22c800012203ef192ceb
爱新觉罗·玄烨:(榜书)积善成德

这是乾隆的字:
1280px-Qianlong_writing_in_the_Lion_Forest,_Old_Summer_Palace,_Beijing.jpg
爱新觉罗·弘历:(行草)圆明园遗迹乾隆御笔石刻

这是雍正的字
212d0003d551f0f0e0f3
爱新觉罗·胤禛:(草书)“偶来松树下,高枕石头眠。日出僧未起,寒暑不知年。”

看看他的字,象是有点才华,喜欢这种古诗的人,给人的感觉简直是个清净无为的隐逸文人,但翻翻清史就知道雍正根本不是个隐逸,而是个淫逸,是个一边念佛,一边杀人的统治者。连自己的亲兄弟和亲骨肉都不放过。他还是阿哥时表示要出家当和尚,只是以退为进,为了谋取皇位。而且雍正的信仰还不少,拜佛又参道,可他信仰的佛还不是一般的中国老百姓供奉的佛,而是喇嘛教的男女“双修”。到雍和宫去看看,到处是裸体的欢喜佛。

雅士雍正:

《雍正荷园题石图》

道士雍正:

《雍正临江钓鱼图》

佛家雍正:
Album_of_the_Yongzheng_Emperor_in_Costumes_3.jpg
《雍正面壁成佛图》

行为是行为,
信仰归信仰。
言行分家雍正皇,
现代仍然有人仿。

佛道回头便是岸,
苟延应知孽海茫。
为求能成佛,
先把屠刀放。

大约他也曾经想要这么做,可至死没有这么做。而且他是怎么死的,到现在也搞不清楚。

这城市不知是不是温哥华,如是照片没拍好,温哥华比这漂亮多了。

《这势头》

最近五年国力强,蜂拥海外购洋房。
看中一个端一个,豪宅就当萝卜抢。
国人不玩猫给鸡,管你多少现金上。
老外看得傻了眼,没傻掉的着了慌。

这才是温哥华:

Light of a Clear Blue Morning (Dolly Parton)

It's been a long dark night
And I've been waiting for the morning
It's been a long hard fight
But I see a brand new day a-dawning
‘Cause I’ve been looking for the sunshine
'Cause I ain't seen it in so long
Everything's gonna work out just fine
Everything's gonna be all right
That’s been all wrong

'Cause I can see the light of a clear blue morning
I can see the light of a brand new day
I can see the light of a clear blue morning
And everything's gonna be all right
Gonna be okay

It's been a long, long time
Since I've known the taste of freedom
And those clinging vines
That had me bound, well I don't need 'em
I Don’t - ’Cause I’ve been like a captured eagle
You know, an eagle's born to fly
And now that I have won my freedom
Like an eagle, I am eager for the sky

But I can see the light of a clear blue morning
I can see the light of a brand new day
I can see the light of a clear blue morning
And everything's gonna be all right
It's gonna be okay …

The Battle Hymn of the Republic (U.S. Army Field Band)


Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord
He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored
He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword
His truth is marching on

Glory, Glory, Hallelujah
Glory, Glory, Hallelujah
Glory, Glory, Hallelujah
His truth is marching on


I have seen Him in the watch-fires of a hundred circling camps
They have builded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps
I can read His righteous sentence in the dim and flaring lamps
His truth is marching on

Glory, Glory, Hallelujah
Glory, Glory, Hallelujah
Glory, Glory, Hallelujah
His truth is marching on

150909061009-american-flag-capitol-hill-large-tease.jpg


In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea
With a glory in His bosom that transfigures you and me
As He died to make men holy, let us die to make men free
While God is marching on

Glory, Glory, Hallelujah
Glory, Glory, Hallelujah
Glory, Glory, Hallelujah
His truth is marching on
Amen, Amen

Hi Steve,

Hoping to see you here more often. Only a few of us old timers left and if you are not visiting, this mall is going to close sooner than Sears!
