Once again, mailing list integration comes into play when posting in a language other than English. Mailing list software is archaic by today's standards and is not designed for characters other than those commonly associated with English. It also tries to force everything to plain (English) text.

The biggest problems occur when a language is used that employs characters not commonly found in English. Some languages, such as Russian, use entirely different alphabets. When a message is posted to the forum in such a language, the resulting mailing list post will be gibberish. The next mailing list digest will also contain gibberish, and the digests are archived for posterity.

The vast majority of HML members read and write English. It is the preferred language to be used. There are only a very few members who use any other particular language.

If you wish to converse with another member in a language other than English, it is strongly recommended that you use PM or e-mail.
