Well, it's about Russians, Ukrainians, Turks and it's not only obscene but also racist and homophobic. IMHO it's not appropriate to post translation here.

post translation here.

I was hoping for some kind of lesson in multicultural slang, not so much a translation. But maybe there is a little too much culture here ...  ;D

Language barrier is a wonderful thing :D

Just switched the site language to Russian and ran the original through both Google and DeepL. Yep, the best machine translation of 2020 can't penetrate that barrier. The meaning is lost.

There is no meaning.  It's just a stream of random xenophobic and homophobic abuse.

Of course it's meaningless if you don't know the meaning :-DD

I haven't really read the original (BTW, there is a checkbox to disable translation of feedback, you don't need to change the site language) but just looking at those half-assed machine translations I can say that it has to be some street slang or Internet memes, of which I admittedly know nothing :-//

With omitting racial slur the gist of it is that cleans anus better than soldering iron tips.
