Non-US Citizens, how tiresome is it when we American Jellies ask questions that are US-specific or assume that you are one of us too?

Asked by Pied_Pfeffer (27408points) October 29th, 2015

There are a fair amount of questions asked on Fluther that are US-specific. There are other times when members just answer from their US-perspective stance and not what really addresses the original question.

Seriously, how do you all put up with us and continue to be a member of the tidepool?

I don’t really mind the us specific, I tire when they think everyone on this site is from the us.

I don’t mind US specific questions. I do mind when I get modded for spelling or grammar when using British English instead of US English.

I don’t mind either of that. I observe, and learn quite a lot about the US. I feel like I’m in a foreign country, at times. I do often have to remind myself that jellies represent a tiny part of the population, though.

Funnily, I thought you were British.

Fluther is multinational, which is healthy, some US users appear unaware of this.
Not tiresome though, I just laugh at their ignorance, for want of a better word.

I’m not bothered by this. The site is largely US, so it’s bound to happen. Hell I even get a kick out of some Americans thinking that we up in Canada are all lumberjacks who eat raw onions for breakfast.

It doesn’t bother me. It might amuse me on occasions. Some questions I ignore because I can’t add anything because I’m not in the US or a citizen (discussions about elections etc.).

Thank you for responding. It is a bit shocking how well you all put up with us.
