No problem about your comment, it's completely true. The information in 
Old Greek is valid than an information in English.

My question is different, the question doesn't investigate the validity 
of Old Greek for the communication.

The problem is: why a person must write this information in Old Greek 
instead of in his own language? No one has got Old Greek like mother tongue.

Probably that happens because it's a linguistic essay or because you 
like to communicate in Old Greek as your language is not an "easy" language.

Closing: my position is not a political position but its' a *rational* 
and *logical* vision.
