That's not relevant.

Will there be some sort of punch line once we’ve all answered?

EDIT: Ah this thread is to belittle Georgef551. I'm ok with that. Dur, I mean the thread not the belittlement.

Voted.

I did know about the bug, but had forgotten. The monitor thread reminded me.

And yes, I know about the English translation of the Japanese word too.

I don't know and don't care at the moment, all I know is that it's something I don't want on my computer.
