neutral  Roger Sjölander: F kommentaren ändrad (vill kommentera Svens kommentar): Jag tror inte att hela den engelsktalande befolkningen har spelat Monopol heller (och inte jagat Kudoz-poäng), men ändå valde författaren denna (globala!) referens. Kanske vill han behålla den.

  -> Tror inte att en referens till spelet Monopol gör meddelandet klarare. Monopolspelare och KudoZjägare är minoriteter. Meddelandet riktar sig inte till dessa minoriteter, men till allmänheten!
