Yeah; that was addressed more towards Victor Mair than Joel. Before he became convinced of the "bad MT software" theory, Mair's best guess was that someone had originally written 'Push', and everyone else was just misreading it as 'fuck' in subsequent reprintings. Which is just bizarre. Mair's got a gorgeous translation of Zhuangzi; I'd have thought better of him.
