I was thinking about this topic for a longer time because I like to tell you more about Holland inside. Why? Because the whole world loves the post stamp Holland, but have no clou about it. Holland is world-famous for it's tulips, Rembrand, the red light district in Amsterdam and it's windmills but there is so much more to explore and to tell about my country. And let me be your guide.

At first, the word Holland is not correct. The correct word is Nederland, The Netherlands because Holland is just a part of Nederland. You have Friesland, Limburg, Brabant, Zeeland etc., and ....... Holland. Noord- en Zuid Holland to be more exacte. But, most times if we say Holland we mean The Netherlands. And I strongly recommend to watch this video's made by a American guy about Holland if you want to learn more about us, the Dutchies and our weird habits.

Survival Guide to the Dutch

So, this is my first posting in my Holland topic and I start with this topic of madam gender. Because you can find a few nice idioms and Dutch facets in it.

Dutch Wikipedia fails the global Wikimedia survey

In madam Gender here topic you find the word "Zeikwijf". Well, it is a combination of two words out of the vulgar tongue. Wijf, wijven, what is a woman, woman in the vulgar tongue and zeik, zeiken, what is doing a pee. And some creative soul has combated this words to zeikwijf long ago. A pissing woman, a woman who whine. A, daar heb je dat zeikwijf alweer, A, again that whining woman. And the pee-lady's have adopted that word. Because they are right, there are far too few public lady toilets in Holland, that is simple true. But it is not a big item. it is a fact we all know the problem but we have no good solution technical.

And where is the English translation for the “Plaskrul” article? What exactly is this abomination?

Well, plas, plassen is doing a pee. And a krul is a crul. like the a curl in your hair. We put it together like we do with all words, we don't separate words like in English and than you have the word plaskrul.

A recent comment here points to the global WMF office ban of a particular individual from the Dutch wiki. Small groups and small wikis can be particularly vulnerable to even limited disruption. If the problem is just one person, perhaps they can recover.

About WP-NL I don't know, but at least I can recover after years and years of dealing with complete bloody fools and mental disabled persons and self declared pudding head wiki managers, that is for sure. And, I told it many times before, that rare SanFanBan makes me still soooo feeling proud. And, it save me lots and lost of time, time I can use to finnish my train project for instance what need desperate a update here.

And these figures about WP-NL made absolute clear James Alexander and his Safety & Trust department where worth every donor dollar and they did a great job by SanFanBanning me. And that is the good news isn't it, because it is a absolute win-win-win situation. It made me happy, it made WP-NL happy, and it made WMF happy, in short, it made everybody happy.
And for the rest they can fuck themself or each other with there complete Dutch Trollopedia and walk to the hell with it. and if they will be so kind take there atshit crazy WMF with them back home to America it would be absolute fantastic. Just get out of my eyes and keep your fucking WMF and Trollopedia back home in the States if you Americans like it so much.

And for the rest, let's talk about real nice and interesting things about Holland. Madam gender made a good start with here posting about peeing women.
