Hello...

Thanks for the warm "welcome" message...
Thanks to the people who have the idea (and make it happen) of this forum...
As you may understand, I am not a native speaker of the English language, so maybe I will have some difficulties to be precice presenting my thoughts...
Allow me to count on your help.

@dromon,
Welcome Dromon! Your message was perfectly readable for me. It is good to have members for whom English is not their native language, as different languages come with different perspectives. The members here are friendly and patient, so I'm sure you'll get on fine and receive any help with language should you need any.

@Theaetetus,
It's obvious that forum's "essence" has to do with the presence of good will, respect, positiveness, intellect, thirst for everything is not worthless and with the absence of ... the opposite!

Thanks for the comments about the language, yet the difficulty seems to appear when I have to use advanced vocabulary and more complex thoughts... In that case I doubt if I use the proper word or syntax...
For example:
(copy from my Macbook dictionary)
Philosophy: the study of the fundamental nature of knowledge, reality, and existence, esp. when considered as an academic discipline.
ORIGIN Middle English: from Old French philosophie, via Latin from Greek philosophia: Love of wisdom. (end of copy)
So in my native language this particular (and who knows how many other words) have a more or less different meaning than the one in English...
There is an ancient Greek proverb that says:
"The cornerstone of wisdom is the visit (acquire the knowledge of the meaning) of the words"
So I have to make many "visits" to words, in order to avoid misunderstanding.
