Excuse me ?

I think a lot of non-native speakers on OCN are doing more than enough to compensate for the lack of knowledge attained by those who did learn English as their first language. The average non-native (English) speaking OCN member is capable enough to write a decent comment. If that means that you ignore 90% of the people who don't speak English as their mother tongue I feel obliged to say you are quite ignorant, I've read a decent amount of posts, I did not understand because of the lack of proper English, written by English-speaking members on this forum. Do not consider drbalthazar's posts as a general truth for non-native English speaking members.

Oh, btw, you might have noticed because of my "horrible" post, but I'm not a native / English speaker either. rolleyes.gif

Wall of rant, didn't read.

EDIT: and I didn't collapse the line breaks, blame OCN.

I think you misunderstood me. I am not speaking down to non-native English speakers. I was trying to explain why the posts are they way they are--it was stated by someone else that English is not their primary language, and it's difficult to compose responses the way the general user population does as a result (people across multiple threads have questioned this user's response construction). That doesn't apply to YOU. That doesn't necessarily even apply to anyone else. That doesn't mean that every other non-native English speaker is the same way, and I am not speaking down to people where English is not their first or even second language.

But when it comes down to it, one of the items in the TOS is the expectation of proper usage of spelling, grammar, and punctuation in English (I didn't choose the language, I only participate in the forum). This is a public forum encouraging public discussion. How can you have a discussion and proper responses if you can't understand what's being said?

This is all coming off rude, and it's not meant as such. I said in another thread about this specific thing, broken English is one thing (I can only imagine how poor my German is in terms of proper sentence construction, verb conjugation and such for writing responses)--but where the words don't even make sense in combination is something entirely different. Therein lies the problem. You can't interact and therefore positively contribute if you can't quite understand what someone is saying in the first place. And hence blocking.

make no sense because you dont understand the term and the context?or you dont understand at all what i write about!i cannot rewrite every post being said on a given forum.often the response is to a post that was made 10 page before and the thread was only started 12 hour before!

You know, I think it's clear I wasn't properly conveying myself. As such, I may have said things that appeared insensitive. I did not mean them as such, and I apologize for my statements sounding insensitive.

ermmm no it wasnt google has been ssl enabled quite some time, the browser just used http rather than https,

The problem with SSL certs is there cost, a 5 year one easily sets you back a grand i aint paying that for my kick around site!

Also look up a extention called ssl everywhere, it eneables ssl on all sites that support it but dont use it nativley ie google
