Ian, this is of course my personal opinion, but I don't think that one needs to 
apologize for not having English as a first/native language if the other person 
doesn't apologize for not learning your's.

The language of this board is (again, I presume) English, and it draws in a wide 
range of people -- from people who only know English to others who slaved 
through an hour with a dictionary to get a paragraph out.  But the topic is 
Perl.  If you were on a message board about "grammar and spelling of 
English"...well, apologies might be necessary.  :-)
