You are incorrect. Many, if not most, of the people on these boards are British. There are also sizable numbers of mainland Europeans, a few slavs, a couple of Canucks (hi, trickfred), and a smattering of people from other parts of the world. While I don't have hard numbers (NeoThermic might be able to provide those, based upon the IP addresses of those that read the forums), I would imagine that Americans are in the minority here.

Once again, I implore you to disconnect your access to the internet until such time as you can behave like a reasonable human being, rather than a complete ass.

I think that there would be very few americans- I can only think of xander, myself, and SODsniper.

Pulling from some older statistics (I've yet to run any updated ones, and even if I did, this generally isn't shareable info).

First, some notes. Many ISP's use .com, even though they are not based in America. Ergo it would be foolish to say that all .com hits are from America. Secondly, there was a large number of unresolved IPs (of which for this statistical period I might of been a few of those; for the given period I was the #1 forum visitor ;) ).

Anywho, in first place we have .net addresses, accouting for about 32% of the hits. In second place is .com, accouting for about 21% of the hits. with 10%, third palce goes to the unresolved IPs.

Now to the resolved countries. The UK is 4th with 7% of all the hits. Germany fifth, with 3%. Then we have good old Canada at 2.6%.

Looking through the stats, the only resolvable united states domains resolve to a tiny 0.7% of the hits to these forums.

1) If you are going to insult me, get my country right. I'm Irish, as in actually Irish, not the "Grandfathers friends cousins uncles neighbours dog is an Irish setter".

2) The person posting this seemed to assume we'd all know of this station, which only plays within the continent of Northern America. This plays into the stereotype of American's, as it wasn't a Canadian, have no clue of what goes on outside their own borders.

3) Your statement which you were forced to recind on most people here being American is hilarious.

4) I have no problem in the first place, it was a joke. I suggest that someone like yourself who is relatively new goes and reads the following.

What makes it so funny is that chaz1356 didn't put any location in his bbs profile.
Lessee, AM radio has no country borders, Internet "radio" doesn't have many borders,
So, my question is thus:

Between what geographical "coasts" is chazzy drowning?

My bookmarks are getting too old for that.
I don't trust the new ones, especially when the Uplink game is my only interest.
And it is from an outfit that emblazens

That bares no relation to using the edit button.

EDIT Button

Postby ChasM » Mon Jan 08, 2007 8:08 am

OK for clarity:
I haven't been using the light-blue colored forum "Cobalt Blue" (which has an EDIT Button)
I am using the dark-blue original pHp Which has no EDIT Button.
It is pointed to by older links stored in my browser bookmarks.

Besides, "EDIT:" is cheating. You should be more careful. . .
Oh, and so should I, sorry.

Are you referring to the Uplink theme which uses the following for an edit button?

And when you say bookmarks do you mean cache?
