This is offensive.  Please stop it.  Publishing private mail is even more
offensive.  Please don't do it.  Ethnic slurs are totally unacceptable.

I am a Reuters employee, but my opinions are my own.  The fact that I
work for Reuters, and that Reuters's home base is the U.K., does not mean
(as a certain Irish nationalist nutcase told me last year) that I
am in the pay of the English.

"Ipsa".  "Res" is a feminine noun.   Priscian's head shrinks, cracks.
