Ich spreche Deutsch.

Elektronische Post in Deutsch ist willkommen solange sie mit der Anrede Sehr geehrter Herr Mag. Gerald Bauer beginnt ;-). (Das ist ein Scherz. Gerald ist ausreichend auch wenn ich mich sieben Jahre für den akademischen Titel abmühte und an der österreichischen Bürokratie fast verzweifelte. Bitte Duz' mich, da ich gegen "Sie" oder unpersönliche Passivkonstruktionen allergisch bin. Danke für Dein Verständnis.)
