Am I the only one finding this way to answer is not nice ?
My goal is not to bother WHRoeder who is using this sentence quite often, but just to improve the forum, to be a nicer place. So I would like community opinion.
I reproduce the last version used by WHRoeder.
Previously it was : "You couldn't be bothered to learn MQL4/5, therefor there is no common language for us to communicate".
I'd say there is no a single answer to your question, Alain, because it depends from context. The phrase presented in the title as is sounds a bit rude. I'd not use such wording. But since the phrase is taken from explanation for the point number 2 of whroeder1's list of suggestions ("learn to code it"), it makes sense. Can be rephrased something like "learn to code if you can afford it and have a will to do it".
In the general context of MQL5 community the phrase "If you don't learn MQL4/5, there is no common language for us to communicate" is of course incorrect. There are a lot of customers here which have no need to learn MQL yet have full rights for communcation.
As I sidenote I'd say that the copy-and-paste similar answers (apparently from a template) from whroeder1 looks like an autoreply from the forum, and it would be great to see more specific and individual approach in answers for specific questions.
That wasn't the last, I already told you I modified it per your insistence.
Granted Mr grumpy does lack the Verducci charm.
That said in context the sentence used strictly speaking is correct. Most times people just want their problem fixed, and are not interrested in the why and how behind it. And therefor there simply is no common language.
An improvement to the forum would be to put an end to these kind of topics. Freelance is the correct place for these topics. Not forum.
Exactly. My terse remarks have resulted in many posters putting in some effort and learning. And some have posted that they are grateful that they were forced to study. E.g.
