in reply to Who's voting and why?

FYI, not everyone on this site is American, or living in the USA. So some of us find US-centricity either rude or short-sighted.

I find it two different things when Vroom puts up a US-related poll (which usually has an option akin to 'Enough of this US stuff') and when someone throws in statements about how wonderful the US is which are totally unrelated to the topic at hand.

As far as this post (thread root) is concerned, I feel that any mention of a topic which has been discussed many, many times is incomplete without links to some of the other times it has come up.

- kudra, voicing her opinion, but not from within US territory.

    Seconded. And especially those who talk about the (American) laws like they apply to everyone here... there's been a couple of threads recently where I've restrained myself from annoying the participants with comments like "not round here, it ain't".

      You should never feel the need to restrain yourself from pointing out the laws differ. Those points, made in a nice manner, could possibly be quite educational for some.
