this speaker pronounced the "rot" (as in "rot13") as "rote" and for the first time every I realized it was short for "rotate"

I had always pronounced it "rot" (like what a corpse does)

anyway, I guess that's this week's phoenix down

@tekniklr If they wanted people to say "rote thirteen" they should have spelled it that way tbh

Or made shifting everything by 8 letters the standard, so they could call it rot8
