I received the following message this morning:

I sure like the 15% discount, but I love their language policy. However, it appears to be a new one, as this message from a while ago confirms:

I wonder what they thought the point of the transliteration was...

The transliteration was for poorly-configured email clients that struggled with Cyrillic?

"Can not read Russian? Learn it."

Their logic is irrefutable.

could be, but what prompted the reversal of that policy? I don't think there has been a drastic drop in the number of poorly configured email clients (also, it says 'can't' which to me is a reference to language skills, not technical capabilities, but you just can't be certain with second language speakers).
This is one of those instances where I'm not sure people know/realize there is a difference between writing and language. Apparently for the folks of, 'to read Russian' means 'to read Cyrillic'.

Not very recently, but over the last 10 years there definitely has been!

This is one of those instances where I'm not sure people know/realize there is a difference between writing and language.

I don't think it's that bad in this case.

I'm not familiar with Russian - is the transliteration legible? Is this what pinyin is for learning Chinese?

The bank is the one probably worthwhile place, and this revenue will normally be negated by the fee charged by the on line casino. Traditionally, on both sides of the desk the gamers take turns to be the energetic player. If the energetic player wins the coup, the same player continues to play for that aspect of the desk within the next coup. If the player loses, the turn to play the hand passes to the next player on that aspect in counter-clockwise 먹튀사이트 먹튀프렌즈 rotation. Now, if the banker's complete is 7 or much less, the banker must determine whether to attract a 3rd card.
