Something strange is happening. At least two of my blog posts have had the language mangled and been re-published in LiveJournal and In Windows Live. My name was left in on what looks like a badly translated & re-translated version of what I originally wrote. I find this very strange, and annoying.

Can anyone please explain, or point me to an explanation?
