Impression I got was someone spoke in German, and someone replied back in German just for fun.

Now if German is all they know, by all means, talk away.   We might not understand you till you get a translator, but hey...

Echo those sentiments--I thought this was supposed to be a forum for the open exchange of hints, ideas and opinions...kind of hard to comment or learn much from something you can't understand. I know this is an international forum (and thanks to whatever higher power you believe in for that!)...but since most of us speak English (at least passably), that's probably how you should respond. Might I respectfully suggest that if your English is poor, maybe try a Babel Fish (by Yahoo!) or similar translation...or, failing that, respond DIRECTLY to the individual who posted in that language, and ask THEM to translate your posting for you.
