What is your problem? You stated that if WM has been posting this crap in German he would have been fired long ago. I state that he has been posting this crap in German and has not been fired. So you were clearly wrong in your assertion.

You were talking about posting in German, nothing about the context. Moreover, one of his books is published as a textbook for students. It is in German, contains the same crap, and he is still not fired. Draw your conclusions.
