Nope. Arabic uses about the same number of characters as English does.

English may have gave Arabic "hard drive", but it got "algebra" and "algorithm". I think English got a better deal.
Honestly, take a look at the history of English and English words some time. The majority of English's vocabulary came from French, Latin or Greek, with borrowings from just about every other language in the world.

I take it you speak with these languages? Because it seems pretty arrogant to condemn them without knowing them that well. Also, what's wrong with Loglan? I assume since you're pushing English as a logical language, you've analyized Loglan and found it wanting. Right?

Wouldn't it matter which mailing list? I doubt debian-devel-french would have any problem with a code snippet in French.
