In essence, what you are saying is what I was implying in my previous post. I 
do not assume that every person on this list speaks English as their native 
language or for that matter, even speaks English. With that said, I am 
capable of passable French and Spanish and further, recognize the 
international flavor of this list - In fact, this is what makes this list as 
good as it is (At least, in my opinion).
