Alsatian ? It must have to do with German food in that region.

You are right. I think it was yesterday or the day before that Whitebutterfly has posted that question/answer in the "Answers to the Interview Questions" thread.

I think that some of the questions are a bit misleading and/or not well put. What has foie gras got to do with a cult? I would have associated the word "cult" with something completely different.

Very true, Valdy.

Even using an older definition of the word 'cult':

(Browse to onelook dot com, type in 'cult' and select Webster's 1913 dictionary)

It seems an odd fit in this context.

Perhaps English is not the first language of the coder/translator?

Quite a few of the great developers, like Elephant Games and ERS are based in Eastern Europe or the Far East. A lot of them come from Russia and the Ukraine.

And BoomZap, for example, are based in Singapore.

Alsace Lorraine passed back and forth between Germany and France through the centuries, so I will never know my real heritage! That being said, as the developers are from Europe I would translate cult as perhaps group, region, nationality, something of that nature.
