P.S
te invito a que vengas a verlo y te animo a aprender un poco de nuestro idioma y de nuestra cultura.

Just click on 'WHAT BRITAIN REALLY LOOKS LIKE'

Yeah! But as you should know, there are also Spanish and Latin American mods, who do speak spanish (and I suppose English too...) and can contact the other non Spanish Speaker mods, if there is any problem.

Por cierto, espero q la cultura inglesa no se parezca a la "cultura" de esas hordas de británicos q aterrizan en tierras españolas cada verano...

Where's the problem?? That shows off how extended is the support from Spanish people to Madrid 2M12 to be the host of the OG


(One more thing: it's just a SSC poll!!!!! On 6th July, we'll know the winner. The best will be the winner...)

First, why doesn't everyone count to 10 and just calm the **** down.

Second, I think what has started this 8 pages of bullshit has been by both sides of the aisle, people overzealously promoting their own cities. My city is going to get it, then only city that can compete is X. In the end, what we say does not matter, becuase the OC is not reading this forum, if they are, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD DO NOT GIVE THE GAMES TO MY HOME CITY OF NYC, PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Third, I think some of the comments here have gone overboard. As many of the British forumers know, I post there regularly as I find the UK skybar to be one of the best nooks in the SSC site. However, I have seen some comments that have very clearly fed into the stereotypes that people have of Brits, especially, in regards to the use of language. When it comes down to it, the only reason people care about English is because the US speaks it. Let's be honest about that. Had our name been Les Etats Units d'Amerique , this thread would be written in French right now.

Now, I am not a moderator, and I know my opinion means shit on this regard. But I post on both the British AND the Spanish forums and I know that nearly everyone on those two forums is a great character. Enough talk about what the Brits do on the Costa del Sol and how the Brits don't need to speak another language because they speak the same one Americans do or how stupid it is to post in Spanish.

ENOUGH.

This is beginning to look like harassment of the London 2012 supporters by over excited nationalistic spaniards . I assume they are mostly teenagers because they certainly do get a bit carried away .

Same to you Englishkevin, with your stupid comments against our language, How old are u?
I'm not going to shut up if they offend my country, my language or my city, I don't put up with this!
And what's the problem of using Spanish in this forum? It's the world's 2nd language in importance and the 4th in number of speakers, surely there will be a moderator that understands Spanish. And in the future it'll MORE important and with more speakers, so it won't be a bad idea learning it...
@Donqui: Whenever these provocations stop this thread will return to its subject...let's all of us make an effort..

about 500 million speak English, of which, 270 million are American. Without the US, there would be more people speaking Arabic than English.

that was not my point. My point was that I was commenting about someone who said that the Brits do not need to learn another language because they speak English. I just gently wished to remind him that in the modern world, which is when we are seeing the expansion fo the English language, it is not because of Britain that people are learning English. It is because of the US.
