    Yo. Sorry everybody. I see all the carloses and santiaagos are pissed off ... chillax bros. Of course it is great to have a game in language you know best.

    What I meant was that it bothers me, when people in international server/community ignore a simple, unwritten rule of ethics, that people speak English there. They are usually kids, so what can yo do, but these are the people who make the online experience suck in public servers. One time we had to start over 5 times, because first lap was a warmup lap - few didn't figure that out, even though we constantly told them in the chat. Clearly I am not talking about you, devoted simracers here, but the larger half of folks.

    Yes, Spanish is second most popular language in the world, fist is Mandarin (Chinese). English is third, but still English is the international language (language mostly studied as foreign language). English is also the language of modern science. So it would be great to remember that.

    Given how you have replied with the post above which is at least respectful, I find it strange that your initial post was pathetically immature. Being able to read/write in another language is difficult at the best of times and not everyone has the education available to them (or the 'skill') to learn another language. Your attitude sounds like someone who has never set foot in another country and so doesn't understand the difficulties of trying to 'live' in a different culture.

    English is now the international language but go back half a century and it was French which was the diplomatic language, and that had been the case for well over 2 centuries. Count yourself lucky that your native tongue is currently the 'international language'. But it won't stay like that forever.

    PS, an unwritten rule is not a rule.

    Do you think making promises in different languages have the same meaning? ;)

    My native language is spoken by 1.2 mil. people and it is not from Germanic language family. Nowadays kids, who grow up with internet and pc games use English daily - it shouldn't be that hard. To avoid English in Internet is quite a skill.

    English will be the language of elites unless power drastically shifts from western world to east. Western world surely lose it's domination over resources when larger part of china started using electricity (lol), but I hope there will be balance.

    Imagination, speculation, fiction, rumor, opinion... is right to expose your review but, you need respect for others I do not mean this post, but previous.

    Here we speak of RF2, not star trek or star wars ;).
