I do like asking "is English not your first language" of someone with a Germany avatar and a German flag.

Anyway, Morden, have you seen Taxi Driver?

No.  It's actually near the top of the list of movies that I'm meaning to watch at some point, but haven't gotten around to.


Well, then my subtle point will be too subtle. I can highly recommend it, meanwhile, here is what I was talking about: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QBvg3PkI-PU&feature=related

     For what it's worth, the other German posters on the forum have generally shown a strong command of the English language. After posting here for a while, it doesn't seem like an unreasonable demand to ask for good English out of somebody with a Germany avatar.

But he didn't ask for good English, he literally asked whether English was his first language. I mean, that can be a funny sarcastic way to criticize the English of someone who does speak it as his first language, but against a foreigner it comes off as strange to me. And a wee bit nasty.
