Why all the defensiveness? I can't read this either, but I'm not feeling the need to down vote it.

I am sure there are many people who can read it. Why would I make it more difficult for them by helping to hide the article?

It just doesn't belong here.
It's explicitely stated in the About page: "English content only"

That does not explain the anxiety displayed in the comments.

There are also explicit laws about jaywalking, but I don't go around trying to enforce them.

Those of us who are fluent in English enjoy extraordinary privilege online. It seems that some are worried about any reduction in that privilege, no matter how small.

I can't even say I'm fluent in English as it's not even my mother language, but if I'm seeking for news in English is because I unederstand them. If this board gets polluted by stuff in other languages, it would get harder for me to find intresting stuff.

And yes, that rule *has* been applied here, and honestly I don't know why this news is still up.
