in thread Non-English posts on Perlmonks

I really don't understand why people get so worked up about my post.

My grand-father emigrated from Mexico to America, and I remember many people, not imply you, who believed he shouldn't speak spanish in an english society, and who expressed this belief using many insulting and painful methods. This is one reason people may be getting worked up about your post. That said, since Perl Monks isn't an "english society", ie. people visit from around the world, post in other languages should be expected and, if the poster can't speak english then needed. A note at the end of the post saying "please translate" would be all I see as needed.
