fix-my-english-please tag

I find a few of the answers, made by people whose first language is not English, difficult. My worry is that some of the answers appear to be poorly written or not thought through.

Would it be possible to have a flag that the writer can use to say, "this is my second language, please contact me for clarification"

Its a small point but I feel I may have voted down a good answer I just did not understand. Or is it just me?

  • You are right but maybe just a tag so others can ask for clarification? I will delete this if I get any more negative feedback. Commented Feb 4, 2011 at 22:17

In a programming related site people express themselves with code, so their native language is not that important. As long as the code they have shown in their answer is readable this is enough for me.
