Hmm, I don't see a compelling reason to keep Anonymous Monk around -- but I don't see any good reason to get rid of it, either.

I think we ought to take a hint from comp.lang.perl.misc in discouraging from post-but-don't-read users, who ask "Please e-mail me the answer because I don't check here," because that defeats one purpose for the site. It would also be nice to encourage people to repeat questions, and to post them in the most appropriate sections, but that might be a lot to ask.

Assuming vroom provides good guidelines on which (if any) writeups to make disappear, those of us with editorial powers can get rid of the worst stuff. (The only thing I've seen that I'd get rid of was the reply to reptile's post. And a lot of blank nodes, but that's a different story.)

If things get out of hand, maybe we should worry about it. Until then, let's worry instead about improving the signal.

    [ambrus]: LanX: native speakers are close, but they aren't on the top. there are a _few_ foreigners who have such a thick accent that it takes more time to get used to it and understand the words behind than even the worst native speaker accents.
    [ambrus]: but yes, typically native English speakers, who think that English is still their exclusive property, are the worst.
    [LanX]: Eily: do you live in an English speaking country?
    [LanX]: I think foreigners tend to simplify their phrases, whereby often native speakers don't know how to adapt
    [Eily]: nope, France
    [LanX]: That's pretty true for every language
    [LanX]: so don't worry, anyway most spoken language in the world is broken English
    LanX (especially in the streets of Singapore)
    [Eily]: yes I know, native English speakers are actually a minority among English speakers :)
