Please don't be discouraged by what I wrote! As a
professional translator, I absolutely understand about
trying to communicate in a language you didn't acquire
in childhood. My post was certainly not directed at

I'm often frustrated by people who don't really read
what someone else says, before blasting away at them
with incoherent arguments because some key phrase or
word set them off. I'm not saying I'm perfect, either,
but I make an effort to convey my opinions in as clear
and coherent a fashion as I can manage. I don't think
it's too much to ask the same courtesy of others.

'Nuff said! (I hope)
