I disagree. I have no problems if a group wants to start a sub with a different language as it's primary. If a sub wants English to be it's language, then let it be so as well. No need for a site-wide rule.

Then block those posters. Problem solved, and you didn't even need a nanny to do it for you.

If there are non-English language subs I usually take them off of /all, but I see no reason to ban them outright and I welcome people of other languages to use saidit. But it can also be a disruption tactic to destroy the front page for genuine people who use the site, so we have to watch against that as well.

That's what I'm talking about. It's not a different culture coming on the board trying to start a dialogue. It's usually spam, 1 post from a new user. The problem is we can't understand what they're saying so you have to trust they're not sharing detailed plans on how to kill the president or something.

Maybe personal settings would allow one to see only subs in their languages of preference.

That would be worthwhile.

YOU speak mainly or only English, but many of us also speak other languages and desire interacting outside YOUR language of choice.

I agree.

English only, everyone else out.

Terfs claim s/all for England, St George and Her Majestic Lizardness.

I agree with you in that I think SaidIt should stay English only for now, but I think the main issue is one of moderation and avoiding spam. Eventually I think it would be great for SaidIt to become a multilingual online forum, but that will only work once the infrastructure to support it is in place.

where? there are ways to filter spam in foreign languages as there are certain patterns to them. unless they hook up some modern language model to their bot.
