The Diversity Committee has responded to your observation by adding Canada.

The Diversity Committee has responded to your observation by adding Navajo (for you) and Aztec hieroglyphics (for nietzsche). A mic chat option will be made available for those people who prefer to communicate in Quechua (since it has no character set).
