Does the US of A own the internet?
Often surfing the web, sometimes even looking at questions posted at Fluther, I get the impression that US Americans seem oblivious to other people. The presuppositions they make, posting questions like “what do you think of the upcoming elections”, assuming everyone ‘knows’ they meant the US elections, can be irritating once you’ve come across an x-th instance of this kind of behaviour…
I would like you to do two things:
1) state where you are from
2) comment on what I have written above:
– whether you agree/disagree with my observations
– (hopefully) explaining why you do or do not.
I am curious whether I am just so purely anti-american that I go out of my way to find things to badmouth them about, or is my growing antipathy rooted in something more or less… tangible.
