The English-speaking world doesn't have a monopoly on cranks. Elcano could be both sincere and have difficulty with English.

I have a question.
elcano, why are you trying to discuss a very controversial topic in a language with which you have difficulty?
Wouldn't it be better to discuss this with your fellow Russian speakers, and then, once it becomes established there, people who are more fluent can explain it to the rest of us?

Re: I have a question.
Hi, anastasia.
I'm just trying to figure out whether elcano is A Very Sincere Messenger Trying To Broadcast An Important Truth Around The World, or whether he's just pulling our collective leg.
