Greetings all,

I truly believe that Proz is the greatest site for translators, and, even though I'm not part of the staff, I always mention it to acquaintances interested in freelancing.

Now, what is the little malicious blue thumb doing on the "Term search" page?
Marketing, or fueling the addiction to "it-who-must-not-be-named"?

Cheers,
Mary

Oh dear Aug 27, 2011

Having spent a couple of minutes of my time to investigate, I see it refers to Facebook. What a relief, as I thought I might be missing something worthwhile. Excuse my ignorance, although I confess am not even remotely interested in it.

I do have 3 Facebook accounts and it's never done me any harm AFAIK. Am more worried about writers who can't use the English apostrophe correctly...

They're both references to Facebook; and, I borrowed some terminology from "Harry Potter".

To me it brought to mind Rumpole of the Bailey. He secretly calls his wife "She Who Must Be Obeyed" (SWMBO), a reference to the novel "She" by H. Rider Haggard....
