  It was hard to tell.

  You do realise that it’s not the same people working on emoji and
ancient scripts, right?  The implication that “if they stopped adding so
many emojis they’d have more time for hieroglyphs instead” is
nonsensical.  More work is not suddenly going to be done on rare scripts
just because emojis are rejected.  If anything, it would probably be the
other way around.

  Should I google that for you?


  “Chapter 11: Cuneiform and Hieroglyphs”.  Since 2014!
