WTF?

Most of the time, my blog  is of interest to no one, except to the hardcore French language self-learner. Lately, the verb conjugation page that I worked up for French, when I first started with French, a year-and-a-half ago, has become the subject of ridicule, in both English and French:

I felt the same way when I was attempting to put it together, so I don’t feel anything other than agreement. Romance languages and their obsession with verb tense manipulation are similar to the honorific obsessions of Asian languages. Every language has it’s challenges (even Esperanto, and I personally feel that language is a nightmare, and received much hatred for sharing my opinion) and those that love their language,  are in denial.
