    Post it. I'll translate it anonymously.

    Why would it matter if you had ties with your translator?

    It was all Greek to me, so I passed it on to a colleague of mine with whom I have no ties. He said he couldn't be sure without better accent marks. Are you able to provide these? He also said that he thinks the words are song lyrics.

    I'm never an ass on purpose.

    I tried that, was a bit confusing putting it all together, and also, they didn't use accents :(

    I have pm'ed the translation. I had assumed that when the thing was translated, I would know why you could not have any ties with the translator. I was disappointed. Call it nosy if you will, but to me it is a matter of natural curiosity made all the more piquant by the insapidity of the message.

    Hey jmmysnyder, I appreciate your help! Well it was a public post on facebook, so it wasn't something private. I just didn't want to ask my friend what it meant :p The post is stupid though, haha.
