Default Re: language use in forum threads

Groot gelijk, maar je kan niks verplichten. Als ik in het Nederlands schrijf, richt ik mij nu eenmaal tot een kleiner publiek.

English is the language with the widest global reach. Obviously this is an enormous advantage to the natives, as every one else will have to use a second or foreign language to communicate. But that's the way it is.

On the other hand, everyone is free to use the language of his/her choice. But you should know that if you write in e.g. Latvian in an international forum, this will seriously limit your possible audience.

Voilą, da's mijn gedacht.
