"this person has possibly done more damage to the Scots language than 
anyone else in history. They engaged in cultural vandalism on a hitherto 
unprecedented scale. Wikipedia is one of the most visited websites in

is a horribly mangled rendering of English rather than being a language 
or dialect of its own, all because they were exposed to a mangled 
rendering of English being called Scots by this person and by this 
person alone"
