    Raymott's suggestion - alphabetically - adds weight to my belief that this (and the 'thus it stands' question and maybe others) share the same basic mistake:

    'Thus it stands' (3 letters) - sic (I think the "translation" is rather po-faced; people use sic when they've quoted something and they want to add 'Honestly, that's what it says, ridiculous though it may seem' - for example, "the question says 'thus it stands 3words' (sic)"

    but I see your point.
