Okay Neil, I'm sorry, maybe this thread has got my sense of humor screwed.

I have to agree, Neil.

Really? Do you know anybody working somewhere like Shell? Well I do, and they've got a very different story to tell. And they have a very different view of the CIA, too.

Maybe, maybe not. You should read our history too, but perhaps (judging from your timely gasps) you think that a third-world country with a 3000-year old history of civilization is still only a thirdworld  country. Note: Bangladeshis discovered China a long time before the Europeans. We gave the world the Buddha, who was a citizen of what was ancient Bengal (Pancha Gouda), supplied the West with spices and jewels and jute for centuries, and our current most famous export today would be micro-credit. Never mind.

I'm sure many would agree that I'm not the only one.

All I'm saying is you have a right to speak English in the American way or in any way you might consider proper! Not because you saved their or anyone's asses in some-yesteryear, dammit!
