No, I have no problems with the English speaking community myself, but I'm
lucky to be rather fluent in English. And I learn new words as I follow the
mailing lists :-).
On the other hand, I also follow lists in German and French, but I am very
reluctant to participate in those discussions, as my language skills are
not good enough for that.
So I imagine that this is the case for other people and English.

made in local communities that never make it to the general mailing list.
