There's something that I realized a couple days ago that I feel like I should point out for others when interacting with people on BHW. It's something so plain and so simple yet so easy to gloss over if you're a native English speaker: You can't judge somebody's intelligence by their grammar, vocabulary, or English communication in general. Just a little while ago I realized that really didn't listen to people who couldn't communicate in English very well. Uncalled for? Yes. Closed-minded? Absolutely. Looking back at questions I've asked, there have been times when I've glossed over very good advice given to me simply because the answer was written in somewhat broken English. I had this idea in my head that those who were good at English communication were the one's who "knew what they were talking about" because I assumed that those who couldn't learn language proficiently probably weren't good at other things. But then it hit me, I've been speaking English since birth. Up until now, I'd been blind to the idea that there are people who are both way smarter and WAY more knowledgeable than me who are not native English speakers. I'd constantly disregard any post in broken English because I assumed from the get-go that it probably wasn't credible in any way. However, that can't be farther from the truth. Communicating in a particular language is a skill that needs to be worked on and trained, much like playing a musical instrument or learning a programming language. Some of us were lucky enough to have been practicing English since birth, while some of us have only been speaking it for a small fraction of our lives. My flawed ideology that "bad English constitutes likely incredibility" just doesn't make sense. People who are non-native English speakers can program, design, give just as good advice, and be all around just as intelligent and contributive to the forum as native English speakers can. Proficiency in language shouldn't be a pre-requisite to getting taken seriously. I hope others can learn from my mistakes and empathize with people who don't speak English as well as most. Thanks for listening!
