I know for sure this couldn't possibly be a torch, no matter how likely it seems :D

It's a shame Bald Eagle wont read this again. The reason (i deduce) he was asked about his interest in the US was not solely because of his question but because of his name and avatar - both being the national symbol of the US.
But, Bald Eagle DID read it as a guest and had an obligation to explain my choice.

Although I have unsubscribed from my own thread, I couldn't help but have a look at what all you guys are saying, just for kicks. I have had my answers perfectly given by responsible posters as I said previously, but could not resist your comment.

Just for your personal satisfaction and not for the trouble makers and veteran trolls who have hijacked my thread, let me explain.

I selected Bold Eagle as my Username complete with the Avatar in respect for the privilege I had of meeting a number of super American guys from the 101st Airborne (Screaming Eagles) when serving alongside them with the British Airborne many years ago.

Does anybody wish to criticise THAT for a reason ? I guess somebody will find it irresistible to do so.

I had to answer that point to clarify my respect for these fine Americans I once knew, but will not be back.

I know we sort of all destroyed the intent of this thread, and I apologize for that, just everyone blowing off some steam and getting a giggle, hopefully not at your expense.

As for other comments made that you felt you needed to explain....
1. Thick skin is a must
2. Dont feed the trolls
3. Dont ever feel the need to explain personal prefference, this is the internet;)
4. Did I mention thick skin?

Enjoy your stay at this fine multi-cultural offering called TechPowerUp!

See my problem with your OP is that you are trying to put a label like American or UK on a forum witch really matters not one bit as it has invited every one to join. Like it some how matters to you for some reason. To 99.9% of the users of TPU it is really a moot point and subject. The world helps you at TPU.

I think you are reading too much into it. To me it looks like a simple question, not a USA RULEZ! thread;)

No no you miss my point. Not a VS thing more who plays the most in the box. I think that is what the OP wanted to know really.

If it is based on user hours, I say the sandbox is mine since I practically live here!

let me make it fair, EVERYONE out of the sandbox :roll:

Really though, I don't see it as such, and don't see that as his intent.
Also your analogy about "the box" can be played many ways too, and in the US, it is something completely not what you meant:p

I've had a few peeps see "Manchester" in my info and assume I'm from the UK, lol. Honest mistake and ironically, my dad was born in the UK.
