I just came across the following message at the end of the man page for a new tool I installed:

> The only human language in which output is generated and in which documentation is available is English, regardless of the user's preferred language.

... that's honestly really nice to see. Admitting we have a problem is step 1.

Another great quote:

> From my point of view, an accessibility issue _is an outage_. If your site isn't accessible, that means some fraction of your users can't access it. That's an outage.

@codesections I hadn't thought about accessibility in that manner. It makes accessibility seem more important to me now. Thanks!
