Then using google translate, changed it from English to Greek, then Greek to Arabic, then Arabic to Chinese and finally back to English and I sound just like our Troll.

This makes the problem here is why"

You actually made my day QRM. I was playing with babelfish over the weekend with this idjits posts trying to figure out where & how, but I never though to take a sane post and put it through several channels. Beaut!

Actually, I made a comment to that effect in my first post in this thread.....

I don't want to be another one to burst your bubble, but your written English looks like you wrote it in Turkish or German and then put it into Babelfish.com and let it do the translation. It is virtually incomprehensible. If you speak the way you write, then you are going to have a very, very difficult time trying to land a job here. The only language that you have, that can be used here is English and the average Singaporean has a hard enough time with normal English from a Native English Speaker. Lord knows how they are going to understand you. I am having a hard time as well. I've would have to agree with beppi. You English may well be good by Turkish standards, but by a native English speaker standards, it does leave a lot to be desired, regardless of what you personally might think.

Later edit:
Hmm, SMS was faster than me and already clarified that the two are the same and trying to fool us. Thanks, SMS! I will stop communicating with this dubious character (whom I also had some PM exchanges with, trying to help - but there he also accused me of ignorance and being wrong for stating the obvious!).

definitely a translator......


:) you are the man

we are human,not a perfect exsistences.

People ,here in this forum are prejudiced.They should consider my nationality,while stating comments.

Are you now in Singapore?

No.
Should I be?

What is prejudiced about saying that a non-native English speaker speaks non-native (which means not perfect) English?
You made it worse (and invited the ridicule) by insisting that your English is fluent and not worse, just different.
But, truth be told, this made the threat quite entertaining - until your post above with the Russian top salaries, which isn't very funny.

You will also notice the various spelling errors in sarinho's last two posts because he wasn't using a translator but his own attempts at English.

Sarinho, you could have saved yourself a lot of embarrassment and frustration and ridicule if you had just come clean in the beginning instead of trying to defend an indefensible position.

Beppi, they are salaries for Singapore positions, not Russian ones.

Sorry man, you lost all respect and credibility when you replied yourself with bogus accounts. Never mind your obnoxious and delusional self glorification.
It's common sense - if you try to come in before I go out, I can't go out. And you can't come in! Lose-lose!

Now here is the uncanny thing I put Sarinho post through the same Greek-Arab-Chinese process and it comes out almost the same?!


"Do not worry, respect is relatively easy to describe. Sorry, you are not a person who told me that this abstract concept"

It does prove the GIBBERISH IN Gibberish OUT theory is true.
