A question for Josh

I tried to ask this last night, but the thread I started to do it was deleted. It may have been flooded with trollery, but still. Just wondering what happened to the thread that dealt with the Spanish and Italian /r/, or to the one that dealt with standards of Spanish. Was the trollery that bad? I'd only noticed a couple of inappropriate messages in those threads. Can't they be individually deleted? It's sort of frustrating to see one's input deleted.

Dommage, ce fil (au moment où il a disparu) s'achevait sur une intéressante remarque: la différence entre le /r/ italien et espagnol serait que l'it. roule 2 fois, et l'esp. 3 fois.

(Effectivement, quand on prononce 'Roma' en roulant plus de 2 fois, ça sonne russe)

I strongly agree with Gabriel's opinion.

If you can't reply here, I would greatly appreciate it if you leave your email address here so that I can get a personal contact.

Thanks for the explanation Josh, I guess sometimes it's hard to sift through the many trollish posts and it's just simpler to delete an entire thread. I don't envy the task of moderators in antimoon.

Spanish vs Itallian
It was just the title.
The contents didn't imply one language is better or superior than the others.
It was more of a question about mutual intelligibility between the two languages.
Maybe, I should've made the title more approriately.

What happened to the Internet Languages thread? It was intelectual, people were posting good information, from websites, and no trolling was there!

The internet is very significant in today's world, it will become more significant constantly. The linguistical trends in the internet are just as imporntant and more dinamic even than the trends in the 'real' world. It is excellent study of how international languages transcend culture variations. It is almost a model of real world society at fast pace and on unrestrained principles!

Hi Josh and Brennus,

I would like to ask what's taking you so long to delete the anti-French threads created by the same hispanic fanaics with the same topic over and over again?

I noticed that you would only delete it if someone from the French side retaliated but it's too late. Lot's of people have already read it.

You have to practice fairness here in this forum after all they were the ones who start this mes. They even arrive at the point of blaming the the French speaking world just because Spain or Mexico didn't become economic and political superpowers.
