Actually I also wanted to mention that I think irc must be very
difficult for non-English speakers.
I know several spoken languages at a basic level. It would be very
difficult for me to post in one of these but I could manage. However if
people started using trendy short forms in a non-English language (like
brb in English) I would be lost. I still don't know what !last means on irc.
Perhaps Lua Tutor could also be named something like Lua Tutor/Basic
Here in my city north of Toronto, Canada, Caucasians are in fact a
visible minority, with 60%+ being so called "visible minorities". Most
people do not speak English as a first language. I would be very happy
to answer questions from people who are not fluent in English and I am
quite good at understanding non-optimal English.
How many times have you seem someone say something like sorry my English
is no good etc..
I hate English and have deep sympathy for those who have logical
languages but have to learn it.
