Default Lost in Translation

Clever thread title, eh? Thanks. So. That thing that might or might not exist (identity politics inspired, social media fuelled cancel culture) has butted heads with the poetry world and made headlines again. I'm sure you'd be disappointed if I didn't post this. You'd think I was ill or something. So what do people think, if anything?

Here's the story (first translator goes)

Here's the sequel (another translator gone)

And here's a take from a third translator (written, presumably, before the news about the second translator [second link] came out) .
