Support The Wikimedia Foundation has announced that they will close all local projects that complained about the IN YOUR FACE FOREVER campaign haven't come up with their fair share of donations at the annual fundraiser. I heard that the French Wikipedia had the worst score in WMF's cost-benefit analysis, so they want to get rid of it. Also, the French people are famous for their enthusiasm and determination when learning foreign languages so I think all of them speak English fluently anyways. --X-Weinzar 18:08, 1 April 2010 (UTC)
