View Full Version : Attention all non-Americans

03-10-2005, 12:35 PM
For those of you who wanted to post in the American only thread, here ya go.
I honestly dont think people come here to insult others.
We do all have different views, and different ways of expressing them. (ie, some do it with tact, some without)
Bottom line is I don't want Forum Police drifting around closing threads that they feel are not good ones. Thats a big part of what I like about this forum. Posts that I find insulting do not make me half as annoyed as threads where a few posts are there to read, but I can not respond to them (thread locked). And I also hate having a topic I was involved with just go missing (deleted).
I think we all have to learn to ignore topics we do not like. As a qualifier to that, I do realize it is possible for someone to create a thread that is totally unacceptable. I just do not think one of those has been posted yet.
My apologies to the Americans who disagree with me. I may not be American, but my father was born there and I do have relatives there. I was born in Canada and we pretty much have always coexisted with each other wonderfully. There was that whole war between us way back when, but that is long forgotten. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
Anyway, just was qualifying myself as not being a Yank Basher. I consider them friends.
To sum up, yup, some posts can piss me right off, but not to the point where I want Forum Police to move in here.

Well said!

But do we also get a poll to vote?

I wish everyone thought like you did. Myopic country bashing (whether American or European) is bad, but not being able to speak freely is even worse.

Yeah, I agree with you Kiwi.

Good post Kiwi

I think the Europeans and America should both bash the Roman Empire. If not for them, we might not have developed so many funny ideas.
