I think that Earl regularly writes here in French and certainly
posts articles here in French. Since he doesn't attribute some of
the things that he posts but doesn't write, it's sometimes hard to
tell which is which. But the point was that I was told to post in
French so that I could be attacked for my supposedly poor French
language capabilities. That seems to substantiate the claimed
"stereotype" that the French don't easily accept French usage from
those not well schooled in it.

Twisted PV logic. You have the right to resist,
but exercise is wisely and not foolishly. The
last word is added for you.

I am not registered in any course. I don't need to be.
