HI Lost Person http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

Your right I've noticed the same thing. Many people seem to be fluent in English even when they live in a forum country. I'm curious to know whether they use a translator of not. I speak English so I wouldn't know.

Hello. There is only one version of the forum and your on it. I once started a thread on how impressed I was with everyone's English and was ashamed to admitt that I cannot converse in any other language. We have bright and talented and interesting people here. Each and every one is worth knowing.

Thanks for the info.... I hope I didn't upset anyone.... when I ask a question people always seem to get mad or something and their like " You shouldn't be asking that question, you should already know!"

And I’m like "WELL EVERYONE TELLS ME THAT SAME THING AND I NEVER FIND OUT!!!!"

And when I ask a "stupid" question about what is it like to live in another country... then they REALLY get mad. "Not every country is like the US!!!!" and, then, they won't answer me, and I’m back in the same dilemma.....

It seems like this is a very "touchy" subject for people of other countries... especially when an American is asking... I have no control over what our government has done and will do so I don't think that they should get made a ME... I didn't do anything, and most of the time I don't really agree with what our government is doing anyway... people (who choose to actually listen to me) find I have a very..umm.... different view of our government than others… They say I have a very “un-American” point of view… if you know what I mean…….
I don't carry any of that stupid "American Pride" for no reason... I have pride when our government does something right. I don't just agree and follow because I’m an American....
I do this to people too…. You have to "EARN" my respect... you just don't receive it because of who you are....

People think that I’m some stupid, ignorant American that is self-centered and all that jazz... And well, I know we Americans are more self-centered and stuff than other countries, but that is just how I’ve been taught... I want to know and learn about other countries and cultures.... but... yet again... they all answer me in the same way.....

SO, thank you, for not getting mad (or not showing it) and not telling me that I’m a stupid or ignorant American (or not typing it! ;) http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif )

LostPerson, don't fret. I've never met an American yet that I didn't like (really). And people of all nationalities take pride in their country and culture - or at least, they should do.

I second to what our friend Jiao has just said, I haven't met a person from the USA that I didn't like! Hugs to you,
