Is this English?  I don't know where you're from, but I don't count such
poor grammar as even being included in the English language...

I would have to say that judging from the postings I've seen so far, I would
say Shachar's English is much better than whatever it is that you are
speaking (if indeed it is supposed to be English).

One who speaks "English" in such a manner should never make an argument as
to what is "proper english".
