I see what you mean, TBC, but I don't think it means what you say. I think we need someone else to help us decide. The quote says, "When asked why he didn't fix it, he replied, "The next day someone will fix it back."" I think you think he means that even if he does nothing, someone will fix the article the next day. I don't think it means that. I think it means that if he fixes it, then someone will revert it the next day and it will have errors again. What do other people think it means?

This is one of the good things about Simple English Wikiquote: we can find out that different people understand the quotes differently, and then talk about them and figure out what they mean. Coppertwig 02:27, 20 August 2008 (UTC)
