    I'd say that's about as far as you need to go. No reason to go overboard.

    We went down to the park near the beach. There would have been a few hundred there. (And we thought the parks were closed.) Did not hear anyone speaking a foreign (to us) tongue, but then we would not recognise maori if we did hear it. We just don't care.

    I have very high hopes that seriousness is a reversible condition.

    Very true. They are baffling the viewers with a load of old rubbish that very few (including most maori) understand. I think that they are just showing off and it means absolutely nothing to the majority.

    Must confess, each year, we turn the TV off a lot during Maori Language Week.

    I'm not learning it, but nor am I making smartass comments about it either. We live in a country where maori were here already. Live with it or bugger off somewhere else.

    I managed to read Stuff today without any problems and their titles for each section are in Maori today.

    What sort of comments are "smartass" comments? Do you mean smart arse or are you just copying the Yanks?
