Fauna and Fora

My Thunderbird is sick.

I went to Mozilla “forums” to look for help. And when I got there I wished they were called fora instead.

Apparently this makes me ‘irregular’ (although not in Norwegian, strangely enough).

I find ‘eccentric’ is a kinder term.

PS. How awesome is Wiktionary? A truly unauthoritative authority.
