PLEASE DON'T PRACTICE YOUR ENGLISH ON MY TIME

As people who know me know, I am not the brightest spark in the fire....I'm barely operating on the one cylinder G-d gave me*, so, it has taken me quite a while to figure out that the comments I get on the blog are written by foreigners (I suspect Chinese people) who are learning to read English by reading blogs and learning to write English by writing comments on what they've read.

"I think this is one of the most vital info for me. And I am glad reading your article. But should remark on few general things. The website style is perfect, the articles is really great: D. Good job cheers." OR "Of course what a great blog and informative posts, I surely will bookmark your site. All the Best!"

I admit to having cousins but doubt any of them wrote this one: "I was suggested this web site by my cousin. I am not sure whether the post is written by him as anybody else knows such detail about my problem. You're wonderful. Thanks!" On the other hand, the correct use of the contraction for "you are" instead of the usual "your" (to denote possession or ownership) is impressive for a non-native speaker.

Anyway, readers are great...the more the better, but if you've really got a comment, make it sting...for example: "In my country, people like me are busy putting people like you into prison." or "My cousin suggested I visit your website and suggest a long holiday for you."

*Editor's Note: Duhl really believes he is the brightest spark in the fire and that the one cylinder G-d gave him is powering his ship at warp speed.
