Who made you the article Gestapo around here?
You must understand that it takes more than just good code to make a good article. An explanation of how and why is essential.
Even if English isn't your first language, there's no reason an author shouldn't write it first in his or her own native language and then ask for assistance (via the Collaboration/Testing forum or even the Lounge) in translating it into English before posting.
Of course, these days you can also do some limited translation via the web, which may be enough.
Remember that there's no need to worry about English in an article being perfect - CPians are pretty understanding of language barriers.
What is wrong with you people? The guy has put together an interesting piece of code that people like me and possibly many others appreciate. Whilst I agree it is possible to get far more out of an article when it is properly written up, if someone submitting an article doesn't want to, or feels it would take excessive time to translate into a language that is not their own, then it is up to them. I wish people would stop being so critical of other people's efforts. If you don't like the article don't read it. If you have a criticism to make then at least be constructive. If you are that bothered Andy then why not offer to translate an article yourself. And as for George...
People contibuting code should be encouraged. It takes 5 minutes to write a criticism and boost your ego, it takes a lot more effort to write a decent peice of code.
