Berezovsky on Zubkov

Зубков - это не преемник.
Глупо думать, что кто-то придет на полгода и вернет власть Путинy.
Зубков - это либо фальшивка или третий срок.

-- Блог Бориса Березовського

Translation:

Zubkov is no "successor."
It's just plain silly to suggest that he will rule for a little while and then return power to Putin.
Zubkov is a sham or, to put it more bluntly, he's a third term.

-- Boris Berezovsky, on his Live Journal blog

I've always been fascinated by Live Journal, Google makes it so easy to translate, any Russians out there want to speak to the importance and integrity of the site?

It's his real blog. Do you realize he's a millionaire and has people to post his messages for him? Do your realize it's necessary to document your statements with evidence? Do you realize how foolish you look not doing so?

PENNY:

Good suggestion!

We'd like to thank the anonymous commenter who said he was offering three translation corrections for this post, actually offered four, one of which we accepted.

We'd also like to remind him that, if he wants his comment published, he should exercise the energy to think of a name for himself, following our rules for commenting.

As well, we'd like to remind his puny little brain that major newspapers publish many corrections every day of the week, and they have large paid staffs to check their work. Mistakes are only a sign of effort, but cowardly little twits like the commenter wouldn't know that because they never take risks or do anything, they only snipe at what others do and get very, very jealous.

Finally, we'd like to point out to the commenter that it's not really a good idea to attack others for making mistakes in Russian. People should be encouraged to use the language, not attacked when they do. That's how to keep the language alive. But then, perhaps the commenter was a true russophobe who wants to kill the language -- unlike us who fight to save it.

If so, he's simply scum.
