Just to offer my version of the history of the list, there at one point 
was a discussion about how much encouragement there should be to post in 
English, a milder flavor of which is expressed by Thomas above. Many on 
the list voiced concern about the negative tone of some of these, which 
came across in rather directive German (no bitte's about it). In the 
end, it was agreed to be more flexible in consideration of those who 
really struggle with their English, with several list members 
volunteering to help with answers, and translations when this might lead 
to additional help from those who almost exclusively know English.

But even now, I'm not sure how it's taken when sentences begin with 
"...Englisch is die bessere Sprache...", even with the "kleine Pflicht" 
at the end.
