in thread Non-English posts on Perlmonks

Those are my guidelines, for my code. Guidelines I enforce on myself, not on anyone else. Having comments, POD or variable names in more than one language isn't worthwhile, and if a language has to be picked, English it is. And while I don't mind posts in non-English languages, I've serious doubts about the usefulness of postings that use a different language in each sentence (other than translations, quotes, or making a point).

The main reason I published the guideline was not to have others copy my guidelines, and use my coding style. The guidelines raises a number of points, which I recommend everyone to think about.
