Kudos for your open mind. I usually refrain from speaking my native language in a place like this: obviously if I'm here it means I understand English well enough. Therefore I have a choice. I see other French monks in the CB, I can chat in French with them, and leave many people out of the conversation, or I can use English, and not only they will understand it, but everyone as well. I feel it would be impolite to leave people out.

Much more troublesome to me is the cultural unification that English, especially American, brings along. The language itself isn't a problem, but the pervasiveness of American Geek culture at the expense of any other is a bit tiring at times. More important than reading French or other non English languages in the CB, everyone would benefit from what non American cultures can bring, and that doesn't happen a lot on English-speaking American-centric forums.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
