I am an American who lived in Canada for eleven years. As someone who was fortunate to spend a significant amount of my life living abroad, I do not subscribe to the "America is the best country in the world" jingoism which is disturbingly common in my country.
That being said, I was not pleased when I saw the above example of America-bashing on the Camera Labs forum. I didn't like hearing this kind of prejudice when I visited the UK in 1994, I didn't like hearing it when I lived in Canada from 1995-2006, and I don't like reading it now.
This is an international community and all are welcome here. I have no authority to set forum policy, but as a participant in these forums I will ask that everyone please refrain from taking cheap shots at your fellow forum members based on nationality or any other demographic.
