this has been bugging me for a long time. time and time again, i see a user with a signature that reads "sorry for my bad english"(or similar) or it is part of a post. if you want to hear bad english, walk the streets of britain and listen to certain groups of young people. they may be britain born and bred, but the words they use, the phrases, are not the english taught in schools. they sound like idiots. for the "sorry for my bad english(etc)" user, english will probably be a 2nd or 3rd language. and that is my point. the idiots who troll britains streets usually have only 1 language(english) and they cannot even get THAT correct. i can understand the "sorry for my bad english(etc)" user for whom english is a 2nd or 3rd language more than the idiot young of britain. whatever the reason you learned english, you still learnt another language and that always gets my admiration and respect. you may not have totally mastered it yet, but you know enough to get yourself understood and i know enough to understand what you mean(most of the time). your english is a damn sight better than my grasp of your mother tongue(zero). so do me a favour, please stop apologising "sorry for my bad english(etc)", you have nothing to apologise for.
