    NOoooooooooooooooooo!

    It isn't! Find a dictionary that shows you how to pronounce the alphabet or just click on this link: http://masterrussian.com/blalphabet.shtml

    Why is A B C D E straightforward? What makes that the RIGHT order. Yes it's right for English, but Russian isn't English.

    This has got to be my favourite ignorant post of 2006.

    Now, now, don't haze the newbie.

    You may want to peruse the "getting started forum" or the general MR site for some basic lessons.

    Пожалуйста: Не браните новичока! (правильно?)
    Заранее благодарю всех за исправление ошибок в моём русском.

    Ah, yes, I forgot to drop it. Thanks! Is this how a Russian would actually say it, though? If they were referring to, say, the recent military hazing scandal -- would "бранить" be the verb used?

    What happens after z and you still have 7 more russian letters? No the alphabet isn't in the same order as English.

    If you wish to learn Russian, I suggest browsing the main site, like everyone else said. Like the beginner section here

    No, бранить = ругать. I can't think of a good translation now, I'm not even sure if there's a single Russian word for it. My best guess "издеваться".

    I just have a feeling that after seeing this post, he's a no hoper, and he might as well not even bother starting.
