stop using strawman arguments, especially to attack people who
are trying to be helpful.
"Speak English or get lost" is not trying to be helpful.
It is also not even *remotely* what he said; hence my characterization
of your argument as a strawman.
But perhaps you just want an argument. :-) Down the hall, door 6.
strawman/ad hominem: I wonder if Timwi got up on the wrong side of the
helpful statement: I really think discussion would be more productive if
you didn't assume the worst from everyone, Timwi. I think we
Wikipedians tend to call my proposed approach an assumption of good
faith -- or is that Wikimedians?
