recently, I saw many posts on Spanish (correct me, if I am wrong). Since, this forum is supposed to serve anyone, I’d suggest, that international communities should stick to English. Otherwise, it discriminates people who aren’t able to talk the alternate language.
Additionally, nobody will join an international community, if 3 of the 4 lasts posts are in a non-neutral language.
If someone sees an interesting newspaper article or blog entry, just try to find another article about the same topic on English. There’s barely any topic, that isn’t also covered on English. Especially not in the domain of “world politics”.
If you think, the article you found, covers the subject better in the native language, then post this entry in a community, that is more related to your target group. e.g. Portuguese articles about the rain forest catastrophe in Brazil can be posted in c/brazil (haven’t checked if it exists). If there’s a similar newspaper article, that covers the same topic on English, then feel free to post it here.
It would be amazing, if the community agrees with my concern to not discriminate other people of the community.
Thanks, if people consider this.
EDIT: To offer the result of the discussion (for mods and other people who prefer a summary)
TLDR: My claim does not represent the common opinion. Hence, English should not become a rule in c/worldnews. Apparently, the community agrees that English, as a universal language, would restrict others from actively participating in this community.
