Once again, the english quotes are also stupid:

It is not clear why german users are the only ones who need an "apology"
because they get stupid-looking quotes.

The english quotes at least stick to the idea that one character is one

Ooh, you've never seen english double quotes represented like this: ``foo''

Now can I file a bug and cross post a message demanding an immediate fix
and an apology for all english speakers?
This is ridiculous.
