in thread Non-English posts on Perlmonks

In Belgium we have three official languages (Dutch, French, German) and altough no-one is required to know any of them it is pretty helpful to at least know something of the other languages.

I can still remember the time when some people found that Dutch was a language only good for peasants and that upper-class people considered French the better language.

If you never had to deal with such things you cannot begin to understand why people get very worked-up about language issues.

I say: let the posters write in any language they choose and let the Monks answer in any language they can.

Hey, we didn't get Unicode for nothing!
