Wow I knew my French would come in handy someday!
Overall this email has clearly been written by someone who gets it.
"A computer is after all but a collection of mathematical formulas"
"The commission's second version of its directive, which totally
ignored the work of the parliament, takes a completely contrary
position to many points from its first version"
Let me just point out one hilarious sentence:
> La Présidence Irlandaise, dont nous ne
> pouvons pas être insensibles au fait que son Web site soit sponsorisé
> par Microsoft, a tenté de s'y employer en classant le dossier dans les
> points A, prêts pour être adoptés sans débat.
The Irish presidency - whose website, one cannot ignore, is in fact
sponsored by Microsoft - have tried to have the bill adopted without
debate by classing it in points A.
