[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: I don't know what I am reading some
days when I take time to study that stuff. One oriental, eastern
language and its script looks like another to me. F'r instance, I
cannot tell the difference between Chinese (and its various dialects)
and Japanese (and its various dialects) and Korean, although I know
there are as many as there are variations on English with its American
accents. But I see the little squiggles and markings and say "oh, it
comes from _over there, somewhere_". So maybe I get Chinese spam as
well, and just don't know which is which. PAT]
