Looks like I'm on double secret probation.
Criticising people for siding with terrorists: 7 day suspension.
I thought is said "Who cancels the canceller?".
But I looked it up on Goggle Translate and it says "Who is cancelled, the chancellor."
I haven't taken Latin in 30 years...but I don't think Google is right.

I personally translate it as Who will cancel the cancelmen?
(I looked all that up when I decided to use it as a Twitter name.)

There was a program called Words which was pretty good about telling you the grammar for the endings of Latin words entered, if they were in the included dictionary. But the author died, the website to download it got taken down, and I'm not sure if any of the website interfaces is still around.
I actually don't remember what the -are grammar could mean, even though that was very early in my lessons. -ares was beyond anything I learned, I think.

Hands up, everyone who's suprised robots and/or the troglodyte woke "programmers" at Twitter don't understand sarcasm (possibly depending on who's being sarcastic).
