Half of the people who use these boards are americans and seriously..what the hell?
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.
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.
