Blogger's Word Verification Revealed

In a recent announcement, Blogger has revealed its source for the words that it uses for word verification. "It seemed best to us to use a Slavic language," said Mary Webster, public relations director for the blogging website. "And what better way to raise humanitarian awareness than to use the language of the former Yugoslavia?" Various civil rights groups are already objecting. "It's simply un-American to exclude other oppressed races," argued Chinese-American activist John Lu. "We demand that begin to include kanji-based verification to represent our people's suffering." When it was mentioned that most Western keyboards are unable to produce kanji, Lu noted that this was more evidence of discrimination.

Slavic? I thought is was Gaelic. They're noted for using lots of consonants and no vowels.
