(The English language is a plague / scourge of the contemporary world).

While I strive to accommodate (and often do) and I resonate well with Frederik's pleas to be pragmatic, avoid zealotry and "the usual language on this list is English," I can't help but find highly offensive calling my native language "plague de la nuntempa mondo."  (Ironic is that I speak some Polish and Esperanto as well, but find them to be inappropriate languages here).

I will say that phrase one more time:  "highly offensive."

Tomek, of course I see your point(s), but as my mother says, "you catch more flies with honey than you do with vinegar."  Please stop offending this list's readers with your opinions, especially as they contain insults to their language — that is wholly uncalled for.  I sometimes say to people, "thank you for your opinions."  With you, here and now, I do not.
