It's also a proof that Internet translation tools generally do a
poor job of translating anything! Frankly, I've never found them
more than minimally useful and was rather shocked that you suggested

A lingua franca on an internation mailing list is a good thing, at
least for those who understand it.<g> It increases the chances that
you get a useful answer to your problem. If you can't communicate in
the de facto lingua franca, all you can do is write in a language
that you're comfortable with and hope someone on the list can reply.
I doubt any of us expect anyone to learn another language solely to
communicate on an e-mail list. Not that that would be a bad thing,
but there are only so many hours in a day. Time has erased whatever
memory of French and German I learned over 50 years ago.
