Default Re: language use in forum threads

For members who are not native English speakers, and who are not fluent in English either, it makes much more sense to me that they post comments in their native tongue. There is always the facility for translation, but that should be done by the person reading the comment, not the writer - in my opinion.
I believe it is easier to get the true sense of what somebody means by translating from a language they are comfortable with than by them trying to express themselves in a language they are not comfortable with.
