Try to learn their language, perhaps... they are a lot more than English speaking people around the world :)
And most of them can't speak it properly
@anon #3, When I go to India to recruit Indians, I will learn their language. Until such time, I expect people calling me on the phone to be understandable and if not the conversation is ended.
The problem is that some people think they are English mother tongue and don't make any effort to make others understand them.

@Anon #5, I have it locked down... I'm guessing my resume got into a system somewhere and it opened the floodgates. I don't really want to delete my LinkedIn profile, I do like to keep in touch with professional contacts. And for the record, I don't do any other "social media", I have facebook but never go on there and I dabbled with Twitter years ago and dropped it after a few days.
I had this one too. "You write on bango?", I'm like whaaaat?, "Your write apps on banjo?". It turns out he was asking if I have experience with Django.
