I'd just like to apologize for anyone trying to have fun on this game that doesn't speak English.

Now who's forcing a language on somebody?

This is absurd, and most likely not true. On my realm (US Illidan), we have a raid progression guild named Crystal Forever. They are ranked 81 world currently, directly under Blood Legion on my realm. Good luck joining them if you don't speak Chinese though: http://www.wowprogress.com/guild/us/...rystal+Forever. Their entire recruitment page is in Chinese. They speak Chinese. It's not illegal, theyve been around for a long time.

A person (whatever the language he speaks) has to learn a new language if he wants to understand what strangers say in that language.
You want it - you learn it.
But no, you expect two swedes to speak English to each other. Purely for YOUR benefit at their EXPENSE.

Compared to a server which was created with a specific language in mind so that those people who spoke the language could get together and communicate in that language. They were not brought up to do so like in a country, they made a decision to create and join a server because of it's language.
lol if that were true half of illidan-us (horde) would be language banned. sadly you can't even rightclick report since at some point it will dc you (missed quite a few queues because of that ...)
I mean it would make sense - after all they enforce it on the forums - but they seem to care less and less about it; also look at the *ingame* random 5man/raidfinder/bg queues with brazilians so you have to know portuguese / spanish to communicate efficiently on north american servers.
As long as there is no clear Dutch/Belgian/Romanian servers clearly stated you can't blame people for trying... Well you can of course but not like they should care then...

Seriously if you are really bothered by it, you should quit the game, pack up all your belingings and go line on th South Pole... the only thing bothering you there will be the weather.

See how weird that is?
Besides if those Germans would visit England as a group and started talking german on the street amongst themselves, you''d want them to speak English just because it bothers you someone speak a different language. So you'd not want them to speak their native tongue in public places even if it does not concern you...
Talk about double standards.
Not sure what to really say about this. Will I get banned for speaking English on a French realm?
A server is specifically created and labelled with X language so that those who wish to speak and be spoken to can choose that server so that they can do so.
A country is not like that at all as it is not a place created for conversation nor is a place labelled with a language so that those that wish to speak it can go there.
I can see where you would see similarities, but the fact is a Server/Public Chat Room is nothing like a country in the way it's use of language is handled as a country has not been created for the use of conversation.
The specified language of a realm has never been an indicator of what language you must speak. By saying a realm is English Speaking, means that all support will be given in English and only English. The only area that you must speak the specified language is on the forums.
So essentially, unless your French friend was swearing in french, he is full of Bull.
Okay... here's the thing... It's some cultural influence too I believe.
I know for a fact, that when you are within a social surrounding of a group of people, in the USA it is considered impolite, one can call it rude, to speak in another language with someone else, while you are part of a broad group communication. That's of course only valid when everyone knows for sure, that you are perfectly capable to have this side conversation in English as well.
Like there are some 10 ppl in vent, and ALL communicate in English just fine, and then 2 of them decide to exchange some sentences in another language, that's impolite.
You have no reason whatsoever to resort to that language. It associates with you talking about something no one else should understand now.
If that's your intention, then take it to a private communication, be it whispering, IM on a messenger or what ever..
But don't do it in front of everyone else, that's impolite.
