i am not a linguist and have never pretended to be one - the person had some valid points and i agreed with them.
the author wrote from the heart and certainly not from the head - his head would have told him to withdraw and erase his letter.
language is a means of communication - understood by most, criticised by many. freedom of speech. however, is a right, not a privilege - it is supposed to be enjoyed by everyone, regardless, and if the author of a controversial letter is brave enough to publish his views, then so be it.
