Are you a moderator or admin here or what gives you the idea to be in a position to make such remarks?
I think it's clear enough from the things I have written in the other thread, that this is going to be a study group for Greenlandic. Obviously it was opened by a moderator or admin after Stacy's request, so that's alright.
Maybe I am a bit nitpicking here but I have a certain idea of what "language teaching" means, and this forum as a whole does no language teaching in the close sense of the word. What it does is networking, exchange, advice and help among language learners, students, native speakers etc.
So if some people claim to be "teaching" a language here on this forum, that's just fine, but I would not do that, not even in my native or fluent languages. I am willing and happy to give some help and advice, in Gaelic or German for example, but I would never call that "teaching", and similarly I don't speak about "teaching" Greenlandic here.
I'm a serious learner of Greenlandic, not a "dabbler", I am in contact with native speakers, I have lots of materials and I'm willing to share and exchange, and there is at least one other learner here who is interested in working together on this forum, to practice and exercise.
I wonder why on earth all sort of people who are actually not interested in learning Greenlandic, who have no resources to share and nothing to say about the language itself, are hanging around here and commenting on this forum.
A bit disappointed.
