    This is the result of a Czech-English translation. Take it with a grain of salt:

    je: I

    As for vgarcia's translation:
    recording medium thick-skulled aspect) hobgoblin
    Hahahahahaha, this has got to be the funniest thing I've read all day.

    I had a girl in our office who's Czech take a look at it and it makes no real sense when translated. It starts off with "she's a woman" and then a few people start to comment about how some problem has been corrected. It's kinda crazy.

    Nicky, problem!
    Hobgoblin, problem corrected!

    I would say that you should be careful of any Hobgoblins you see around Nicky, they are coming to eat you.

    Hi,

    I'm Vilem Malek, current editor-in-chief of Interval.cz, the biggest on-line magazine for webdesigners and webdevelopers from Czech and Slovak Republics (formerly Czechoslovakia, but from 1993 two independent republics, stupid politicians :–(

    Your link points at discussion under article about news from world (including your "Develop Content for Communication"). In this article our author made error - he knew, that you are woman, but made overstrike and it looks like you are man.

    Readers, author and our editor discussed, if this error was typo or ignorance and if delinquent was author or editing corrector.

    Yours


    Vilem Malek
    editor-in-chief, Interval.cz

    P. S.: Other questions or remarks at vilem.malek @ interval.cz (I am not day-to-day member of this phorum ;–)

    P. P. S.: Please, don't use automatic translation engines for conversion Czech language to English, outcomes are really horrible ;–)

    P. P. P. S.: Beg my pardon for my English ;–)

    Ha ha, well it is nice you all think I am a hobgoblin, whatever that is.

    It was also nice of the Intervel dude to drop in, although he could have translated for us!

    I'm afraid, I'm not so good in English - I don't know how to translate conversational words, dialects and plain babble...

    But nobody said, that you are hobgoblin, mister Kopp talked about "tiskařský šotek" which means "printer's devil" ("šotek" = "goblin" ;–)

    And one more thing, we are not "Intervel" but "Interval.cz"...

    Maybe this is how all SPAM is created? All spam writers are actually czech and it is simply translated into English?

    I got that one this morning. I think it means that if you drink vodka and take viagra at the same time, it turns you into a medium sized devil...

    And the reference to 'printer's devil' had me none the wiser. So I found out that "A printer's devil did all those nasty jobs of setting type, running the press, putting foundry type back in the cases, cleaning up the mess."

    So they are discussing a misprint at that point and blaming it on the 'printer's devil' - I think...though that may be an aboriginal solecism
