Non-English speakers...

This is a serious post so please excuse the language and lack of smileys to break up the length.

I always felt that KKW was very accomodating for non-English speakers who at least try, cracking down on lazy English speakers using text language instead...but it seems with the treatment Glow's been getting that perhaps I'm wrong. It seems only the other non-native English speakers (like Leonie who's Dutch) actually are willing to understand that for some people English is their second language and that if they have trouble, it's not their fault. It's not hard to be a little accomodating and understanding.

Next time, if you don't understand, please ask nicely as opposed to making out the person is stupid, because they're trying to use an unfamiliar language...imagine YOU were on a Russian board as an English speaker and had to use Russian...I think most of you native English speakers would struggle, so give them a break! It's rude, it's cruel, and it's just downright wrong. Try and assume a more accomodating tone, be respectful to their efforts to try and use the language, and help them along, eh?

All in the spirit of building an even stronger community than before, rather than being insular and disrespectful to newer members.

(PS: I wasn't sure where to put this, so if a Mod wants to move it to a more appropriate place, or even delete it if they think it's inappropriate, feel free to do so, I just had to have my say on this issue)
