Default Re: why not english?

If people feel comfortable writing their notes or critiques in English that is fine with me. If people prefer to write their notes or critiques in their native tongue that is equally OK with me. I would much prefer that people express their thoughts accurately in a language they are comfortable with than for them to simply say 'Good Shot' or 'Nice Colours' in English.
I understand some French, Spanish and Italian but would not be comfortable trying to express my thoughts in writing in any of those languages, so why should I expect any natives of those countries to express their feelings in English? I just think that is arrogant.
