That it is in Spanish?
Howdy, TowerTalkians --
    I recently sent a TowerTalkian and the  list a terse email that was the 
culmination of a series of incidents. In  this case the poster was carrying 
on a what looked like a private conversation  on TT about his problem. I 
asked him that a private conversation (of  little or no value to the other 
2000 members) should be done off list. He then  proceeded to carry on another 
obviously private conversation IN SPANISH on the  reflector which was only of 
interest to him and the other party. I  took that as a slap in the face and 
sent off the aforementioned email.  

Everyone on TT, in spite of members from a  dozen or more countries that 
are not native English speakers, has used  English on the reflector (and ham 
radio in general) as the "official"  language and that seems to work just 
    I appreciate the fact that mostly members act  like adults and we're 
way ahead of other special interest reflectors that seem  to be mostly pissing 
contests between members. TT is a terrific resource and  I'm glad that it 
works so well for it's members. Thanks to all.
