"We Americans"? I hope this "we" doesn't include the readers.

"The readers"? You presume that none of us are Americans?

What do you mean, 'we' people? :PAnyway, I'm not an American but I certainly didn't take offense or read it applying to me in any form, rather a witty jab at where the company Blizzard is based and the fact most readers here live in the Western/Civilized culture where America is one of the worst for being known to sue, counter sue and amy.People really need to get over this whole categorizing issue and look beyond it to stop missing the ironic quips and be a little more secure in who they are. If you are not an American and can't see the funny side, then Fox didn't mean you, move along. :)

True, not everyone that reads this site is from the US, it could be argued that Fox meant north and south America whe he said Americans.

"The readers"? You presume all of us can read?

I know English can be a difficult language for non-native speakers, but it should be noted that when someone says something long the lines of "this is something we Americans do", it implies nothing more than that the speaker is American, and that what he does is something not unique only to him or her, but common among his or her countrymen as well. Whether the person being spoken to (or the reader, in this case) is included depends on whether they are also American or not. The statement itself neither implies that the reader is or isn't American. Acting like it does makes you sound a bit defensive.

ZOMG!! I liked and upvoted a comment by don, is this the end of the world or something?!?

@DonNochayYou miss the point. China isn't Western culture - but it IS civilized - hence why I expressed Western/Civilized, to include people not under Western culture.However, there are pockets in China, just like in North America and across the world where people are uncivilized. Civilized meaning "polite; well-bred; refined" as defined in the Webster dictionary. Something you, sir, or ma'am as the case maybe, are not. ;)Again, to you and to the ORP, lighten up. Life is too short!
