What about the fortune seekers

The Curt Jester: Alphabet Jihad
The letter "X" soon may be banned in Saudi Arabia because it resembles the mother of all banned religious symbols in the oil kingdom: the cross.
Ah the irony of a letter derived from the Phoenician alphabet being discriminated against by Arabs.
What about all the fortune seekers? How do they propose to mark their treasures in that vast desert? I mean really, W marks the spot?

And some of the Jester's commentors are 'worried' about some math symbols. I wouldn't worry too much though, I am not sure they have discovered them yet.
