in reply to Non-English posts on Perlmonks

If someone can really only properly explain their problem in their native language and someone else can explain a solution to them in the same language then where's the problem?

If you can't read and answer the question then I guess that's one less thing for you to do today.

You speak of missing interesting topics and comments from people who don't speak your language but what solution do you propose - 'Just learn English' - perhaps?

    ++, I could not agree more.

    IMO, people should be able to post in any language they want. Enforcing English on this website is one step away from censorship. Is that the direction that we want to see this forum head towards?
