  1. While I see your point and think that using the internet as a method of linguistic preservation, we must also remember what the internet is. It is a platform across which people from around the world can communicate. And English is the lingua franca in many circumstances. So, ignoring how right or wrong it is, it makes sense that English dominates in the realm.

  2. I’m really glad you chose to write about this – I’ve always wondered how much of the internet was dominated by English, because I figured it had to be at least half. I’ve found a serious lack of quality in webpages in other languages, especially about academic topics, where most research is done in English. It was really helpful to see the imbalance quantified!
