      Well, there are pros and cons:

      The advantage is of course that, if you both speak Chinese natively, you
      run less risk of misunderstanding one another due to bad mastery of the
      language.

      The disadvantage, also "of course", is that you shut off from
      participation anyone who doesn't understand Chinese.

      Now it happens that, for good or bad, the vehicular language of this
      mailing list is English. This doesn't necessarily mean that even a
      majority of participants are native English speakers: Bram is a
      Dutchman, there are several prominent French-speakers, quite a number of
      Chinese, some Russians and at least one regular Spaniard, to name only a
      few. To be sure, there are some British and Usonian people here too,
      including several quite prominent members of this group, but I'm not
      sure they are the majority. All that "vehicular language" means is that
      all posters are expected to understand what is said in English, and to
      be able to make themselves understood in something resembling English
      (even broken English, but of course, the more broken, the less
      understandable it will be). With the help of a dictionary and/or grammar
      if necessary.


      Best regards,
      Tony.
