While I think Michael could have waited a day or two longer, I'm
glad he has made the step forward and ended the specific discussion.
I don't mind if there is some more general discussion, but I would
prefer not to have to continue the specific discussion.

Please be very careful. There is a big distinction between "Standard German
in Switzerland" and "Swiss German Dialects". de-DE, de-AT, de-CH are correctly
called variants, not dialects.
