I knew this kind of answer will come. I hope you *now* know when using the 
term "Cultural dissonance" and when not. E.g. when people are not willing to 
use a common ground such as communicating in English on this list.

Denying a common ground disrupts every honest discussion (sorry that I needed 
to demonstrate it).

Thus denying a common ground of rules of all Wikipedias is exactly the same: 
Disrupting Wikipedia as a whole.

My German answer basically contained exactly these words.


P.S.: Brigitte: See above. Your assumption on "some pity for non-english 
people" wasn't my point ( I knew that someone will say this, too ;-).
