Truth is truth whether spoken by a child or spoken by a wise man.
Truth is truth whether spoken by a homeless person or by the richest person on earth.

Good ideas are good ideas whether developed by the world's weirdest eccentric or by the most conservative person with letters and degrees.

Good ideas can be expressed with the language of a child or with the language of the world's most eloquent orator.

Great thoughts can be communicated by those who speak or write with flawed grammar or by those whose grammar is perfect.

People who visit fora may or may not have the same background in the English language that you, the reader, has. Does that make their contributions any less valuable? If you really want to understand others' ideas then you can.

It is easy to criticize others for their errors. It is rather more difficult to contribute something of value.

I believe we should encourage everyone to contribute positive comments rather than to criticize for the sake of criticism. If you want to be a critic, then tell about the flaws in the ideas expressed or tell what has been overlooked, or tell how something could have been better.

Let us not criticize the usage and grammar of those for whom English is not necessarily their native language, but, rather, encourage all to participate to the best of their abilities.

If you need to ask for clarification, or translation, I am sure that others will help out.
