I think you are missing the point.  Someone started being a language lawyer
and claiming that the list is "primarily" English-language, so I was just
pointing out that phrase was also an inadequate description.

Do we need to declare one language primary?  We have some translation
services and some people who will translate important things.

communicate a point better by posting in their non-English first language,
let them.  They can see that the list is commonly in English and accept the
reduced audience.

I'm afraid I can't agree.  You are merely using set theory to justify it.

Please, let's all just let people post in whatever they think best for each
task, without claiming any "primary" status and end this thread!
