Robert is 100% right! Mikes oppion contains no real
insults at all, not even really bad phrases, at least
not in the original german version. German insults look
quite different, and we tend to recognize them when we
read them.

In this sense I was somewhat careless in my instant
translation and I want to apologize for it.
