    I was noticing the power of the web and started keeping track of locations, out of curiosity.

    I've seen member locations in Australia, south, east and west Canada, China, Croatia, Estonia, Guatemala, Hungary, Indonesia, Malta, Mesopotamia, Gozo Island / near Malta, Slovenia, South Mexico, Turkey, UK, and Uraguay.

    So when someone has trouble with their english, I give them a pass.

    Yes, this nation wasn't founded by xenophobes. I'd rather go to a translation website than attack the poster. After all, he's not even threatening to come here and only asks for recognition of his welding skills.

    Muy bien, soloprirpo.

    Default Uneducated weldors

    Perhaps it's time for you idiot old timers to quit watching Archie Bunker reruns and learn a second language. Oh wait - you're weldors - you're too smart to have to learn a second language.

    Learning a second language is always a good idea. No doubt about it.
    But it will neither make you a better person nor will it solve the problem everytime. I speak German and some English. If I would ever want to post on a Spanish language welding forum I'd do it in English, knowing that it's the wrong language for that board. Do you really think that would lead to a discussion over there whether I should learn a third language or the board members should learn English?

    Somewhere I've red the line that "welding is an international language". I think that after looking at the pictures everyone here knows the content of the first posting even without reading the text. So I guess that every board member is already learning at least a second language. Agreed?

    Most posters of foreign locations do at least attempt to post here in English.
    That is common courtesy The OP did not, this goes back to laziness.

    The OP did post some nice work.

    I noticed the welder right off! Hmm, shows a balance of trade, that is a good thing. I for one am often impressed with what the "citizens" of third world countries (emerging) can do with what "many" Americans would not even attempt (complaining that the "boss boss didn't provide them with adequate tools" to do the job?? Before anyone starts flaming, I would encourage us all to focus on the "pride" of workmanship, discipline, ethics and Character. Those are the attributes IMHO that transcend borders, language and cultures. A couple of years ago I was in the Philippines and with my jaw dropped most of the time witnessed what can be fabricated, welded, finished and cared for with "pride", and I personally watched the "craftsmen" do the work with either OA or SMAW from equipment, often thrown away by Americans 50 years ago.

    I recently met on a UK mig forum a gentleman that had purchased a Dynasty and together (me being a novice) but willing, worked with him to set it up and get him going on a project. (he was utilizing the UK forum because of the intimidation he received by asking "newbie" questions on a US welding forum. (I didn't ask which one)

    Thanks to many of you I have progressed in my desire to learn the Tig process to where I plan on taking a few code test later this year and have already turned out some successful projects. THANKS, http://www.elite.net/~runner/jennifers/thankyou.htm

    solopripo is the one you addressed in your post. Who more than him deserves
    an apology? If you owe every member of the forum an apology as you say...
    solopripo is a MEMBER. Have at it.
