At the same time though: I’ve learned through years on the ‘net (1989 –> ) that there’s nothing that can’t be expressed in 6th grade (USA) English, which is generally what I use.

Actually, considering that this isn’t a general group “about anything” – it’s about philosophy – and philosophy *does* have a language of its own as well as a culture and certain expectation, it’s not unreasonable what you’re saying.

Also, unless we’re trapped on the fake internet provided by fb for India and other countries, we all have google and wikipedia and other sites as well, so there’s really no excuse.

I have a Korean friend who doesn’t write in English. I don’t write in Korean. We both share an interest in Quantum engineering and possibilities. [he found one my posts a few years ago on google plus and friended me].

We get into long conversations, all using google’s crappy english korean translation. It’s really an AWFUL translator for korean and english..

..but … it *works*.

I helped him through girlfriend trouble, through school (he’s taking quantum physics – I think he’s in whatever their equivalent to grad school is – he’s 22/23 now), issues with his parents and siblings and as well as school subjects….

and somehow we understand each other, even though sentences turn out like this:

“I (- I thought he was the school or the equivalent of what the graduate himself – he’s taking a quantum physicist, he now 22/23) to help him with the problem of female friends through school, his parents and brothers and sisters, as well as school subjects problem ”

My point is: we have tools available if our language skills are lacking.

Words aren’t magical – substitutes are fine as long as concepts get across.

You may disagree. But my point is, in the ‘gist’ of what you’re saying, yes, nobody should feel limited in speaking the way they wish.
