Hey, windbag, there must have had been a lot of immigrants from Wales who settled in Pennsylvania. ...

Why would you encourage someone to visit a country you despise so much?

In fact, why can't you answer the question?

Why would you move to a country where you hate all the people so much you would refer to them as 'usanian'?

Why?

Seems it is a term that's quite common.

Personally I don't see the problem unless people are terr ...

And somehow, someone has convinced Chinadaily to ban that word.

The problem with our moderators are that they are often misinformed or not well informed and prefer the emotive to the dialectic. That's quite common with mainland Chinese. And that's why they have a hulluva time in the West, the latest being the Shuanghui takeover of Smithfield ( China's biggest deal so far, worth over $4billion )

I argued for the deal to go through, but you should have seen the emotive language there.

Its an insult.  That is why they have banned it.

Its like using the 'n' word.

Talk about emotive.

That term is explosive.

AND not common anywhere.

No canadian would want to be called 'american'.  No mexican wants to be called 'american'.  No brazilian wants to be called 'american' and so forth.

Its ONLY haters like you and seneca that uses such a derogatory term.

I find you... very emotional and like some other less salubrious forum members, you have a tendency to set up straw-man.

You interest me less and less... and now, not at all.

I don't talk with Petera either ( and a few others ). You will have to come up with something... fascinating to me in order to attract my attention.

Go out in your neighborhood and start calling people 'usanian' and see if you don't get beat up.

I  find you just as offensive as your buddy seneca.

I will never forgive you for using that term 'usanian'.
