Hi Nabil,

Glad you're enjoying our site. Tell me, what exactly are your high hopes?

Hi Aain,

My first hope is to change daily usages and modes of thinking in this site and insinuate what may possible happen if some people acquired for a long enough time some skills and they feel entitled to claim the authority or even the privilege to make their language the standard to do things, even sometimes in wrong way and the norm from which we should not deviate.

I will reveal others in their time.

Well at least that statement was in English, even if the sentiments were mistaken.

hi,

Do you speak about snow blindness, or about the gleam of stars upon snow?

I think the moon will lay today like snow.

By the way, you have incredible white teeth, like snow shut in a rose, not as mine :)
