Did you actually read what I said? Obviously not. I am throughly
insulted and you owe me an apology. "principalement" means primarily.
I did not say: this is an English list, go away. I did not even say:
please post in English this is an English list. I stated that list is
*primarily* in English and I then proceeded to translate his text so
that he might have a better chance of getting a reply: I know that
there are several people on this list who might be able to help him
and do not read French.
Where do people come up with these prejudices? I may be American but
that does not mean that I think the whole world should speak English.
In fact, I do not think most Americans think this despite the fact that
when I am in Europe many Europeans would have me believe this (many of
these so called "explanations" on American culture came to me in a
non-English tongue; so go figure).
