in reply to Non-English posts on Perlmonks

Hello Monks

WARNING: This reply can be undersood as malicious

I decided to write this in english... why? Maybe becouse i know this language 'a bit' (unlike Vennis does) - in fact it doesn't matter why, so don't ask.
I'm from Poland, so of course i would prefer to write in my native language (PL: i kto wie, czy tak nie zaczne robic - chocby ze zlosliwosci), but i use english, becouse most of people here use and understand it. I want to say, that i feel disgusted reading some replies and i also feel gracefull for the others. We speak many languages (as a community) and so let it be like that!
To learn english, is not a solution! English is not the best language ever seen... neither is any other language. Usually i just skim the newest nodes and read only some of them... And it's not becouse i don't understand the language - i don't understand their content.

Anyway - as a community IMvHO we should be tolerant for people asking for help in language other than english. We meet here becouse of Perl, so let's focus on Perl. Of course it would be much easier for most of people here to answer questions written in english, but for sure we should not make it a rule!

Greetz, Tom.
