What i don't see as something friendly -and sorry about it- is to discuss this terrible moment in English. I know the list is in that language, but a lot of us are South Americans, living this from Latin America, and having to translate our opinions (even between us) to a foreign language. I feel it a bit weird, sorry again. And this is sooo strong for us (as imply a key point to all the region) that it's very difficult to express it in English. At least It's one of the reasons I remain in silence.
