RE: Posting in foreign languages

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I don't have a problem with it either, especially if the conversation was
taking place between more than two people. As for the prophesies of the next
100 years, well, I don't think the world is that predictable, and I don't
really worry too much about it any way.

I have no problem with the other than English postings.  It reminds me that
there are other places left in the world.  (I can not read Spanish.)  If a
forum is open to all, then all will be involved.  Cut out part of the world
and miss out on what is going on elsewhere.  Also read the posts on
exporting labor, importing labor.  That is where the world is going and to a
great degree is now.  Shutting the changes out puts one in a position of
ignorance.  The question will become mute in a hundred years or so anyway.
It is projected that there will only be three languages left, English,
Spanish, and Cantonese, and three places to eat out, McDonalds, Del Taco,
and Panda Panda.  Too bad.
