notice how they are all closed by the Spanish moderators......

to be fair though, not many of them venture out to the English sections of the forum. Given that there are a quarter of a million posts in the Spanish form, this is not too much of a problem......

Although I agree, it was a wee bit underhanded to start a thread to vote.

Eddyck, a question, why don´t you want say that englishkevin´s word is a mistake?, maybe the word of "badajocense" isn´t the best but it never justify englishkevin (remember, englishKevin was the first that he offend us, you think that we shut up? you must think a little about the problem and you will find the answer)

BTW, has anyone else noted that we have reached past 1000 posts? Given the current tone and the no-more-than-500 posts rule, I think that it is best for the mods to put this thread out of commission.

Eddyck I don´t beg justice only because he said about spanish language; please you must read all reference about spain/spaniard/madrid. He used sometime the word "silly" "ignorant" and other word that he offend us, OK?.

@eddyk That thread is almost new, so I guess few Spaniards could have seen it... we're quite a lot now cuz we've wrote in the Spanish forum about all the English forumers' provocations and insults, we are here defendig our language our culture and our country, and of course supporting our bid!

I knew Spanish will sometime have more native speakers than English, but nowadays???? And only 20 millon speak it as 2nd language, even less than Portuguese??
More people speak French than English as second language??? I strongly doubt that!!

London - 63.40
Madrid - 61.11
Moscow - 49.77
New York - 59.62
Paris - 65.88

I'd say the BidIndex is looking pretty accurate right now.
