Could it be that he was kidding? I know its a long shot but maybe this was just a joke? Nah your right, he was seriously implying that everything on the net should be in english and that we should change the name of the Schwartzian transform. Come on. I wonder if all the downvotes are because he used "american", what if he had said "british" or canadian, or french. I do find it rather amusing that the anit-american attitude is soo strong, while I haven't heard any americans be anit-anything. Perhaps I don't listen well enough to catch those, its possible. Either way it was a joke and meant to be over the top. You didn't take issue with "silly z." I mean Z is my favorite letter, that arrogant bastard calling my z silly, I think i'll downvote him. You're all free to vote how you feel obviously, but do remember it was a joke even if it flopped in your eyes it was meant as humor not political commentary.
