Hi, salut !
May be it's because this group is in English and only in English that few French people write there. Why don't you try the french forum "fr.misc.automoto.mecanique" or this one "francom.automobile" ? There you could share your ideas and why not in English...
Those who post here often own US FoMoCo cars

You should just surrender to the newsgroup and post in English, unless you want us to make fun of you for being French.

Out of topic, but it's just an answer.
Hi Childfree Scott
You wrote : "You should just surrender to the newsgroup and post in English, unless you want us to make fun of you for being French."
Try that in a French Group ! Writing in French and if you can't in English ... Why not ? You'll see you are still welcome.
I am quite surprised when I read such answers. Is it because of the recent past problems between your President and mine ? If it's the reason, your answer was out of topic. I have a lot of friends in the USA and in the UK and that war has not broken our friendship and when I see what's happening now I am happy that our relationships are still strong.
If you need somme help about a problem treated in a French Group and you are not sure to know the good words in French we accept the foreign languages as English, Spannish... and if one of us understands and can answer, he answers. So I suppose that many Frenchs as many Americans do not know a foreign language but they try to communicate and I do think it's the best idea.
Sorry for the mistakes. I learned English at school... 35-40 years ago (but I try to write often in English) I expect you'll forgive me. And as I respect the chart of the group I write in English (or I try).
Now for ending, I own two American cars, ('73 Ford Mustang Grand and 89 Mercury Grand Marquis) and when I need some help about these cars I have to go on an American News Group as this one (There are not many American Cars in Europe). The language of the group in English, it's the rule. I can write in English so I can have help. Imagine I don't know a word of your language, I'd be obliged to ask a friend to write for me or find a book translated into French (that doesn't exist or almost).
May be should I have to burn my cars because they are American and refuse to speak or write in English ? No thanks !
Sincerely
Patrick (From France in Europe)

I would not even consider posting into a French group unless I could do so in French. Trust me, if I really wanted to insult the French in their own newsgroups, I would figure out how to do so in French.

I've hated the French since the 1980's. And as to why, I think you already know that nobody like ingrates, cowards, or surrender monkeys. Don't you get the TV shows "Married With Children" and "The Simpsons" in France? Or do they censor out the parts where they make fun of French in these TV shows there?

If we're not liked by anybody, and if that includes you, get the fuck out of the NG.
Oh...I forgot...you can't leave the NG because we have the info you need. HAHA fuck you.

Blessings to the guys that do spend their time on the NGs to help others.

No problem, if I can help you.

Hi Marc
Thanks for your proposal, but I don't need that. I do not remember I wrote something offending you or American people. So why are you so aggressive ?
Fortunately some Americans are friends of mine.

As far as I can tell, the people who hate the French the most are Americans, Canadians (outside of Quebec), British, Swiss, and natives of former French colonies. Others, like those in the Netherlands and Australia, don't necessarily hate the French but still enjoy poking fun at the French just the same.

Childfree Scott I live 300 km far from Netherlands, not far from Swiss, have good relationships with the West Sussex Local Education Authority (England). Sorry I don't see the same things as you. And you sait too :"I've hated the French since the 1980's. And as to why, I think you already know that nobody like ingrates, cowards, or surrender monkeys. Don't you get the TV shows "Married With Children" and "The Simpsons" in France? Or do they censor out the parts where they make fun of French in these TV shows there?" Here in France with have no censor and we can get some US channels too but you do not get Europeans channels, it's a pity for you because American People are note alone in the World.
If you watch at the TV you'll see that France is organizing something great for the 60th Anniversary of the Normandy landings (I live in Normandy). We do not forget what Amrican troops made for us. But do not remember what French troops made to free American from the British power. Of course it's far now!
As we are out of topic now I shall say : "The game is over" as said your President. But if you want to answer me my email address is not false.
As you can read my English is not perfect but I'm 56 now and I learned your language at school in the 60's-70's. But I'm proud to be able to answer to someone who doesn't speak my language and though you seem to hate Frenchs I consider all Americans are like you and still correspond with my old friends over there.
Sorry for disturbing the group. I stop now and won't answer here. I'll not have a blink on this group as often as before now.

Do not hesitate : look at this forum. It is not French but Belgian.French language is required but everyone is allowed to write in another language if he can't write in French and won't be ignored or rejected.
You will see that American cars are appreciated though you say that "nobody likes the French"
