Enough already. I am so done with the snide and nasty references to my nationality every time I have the audacity to seed or write something on what some of you perceive as ‘your’ website.
The insults and discussions you have about me in your little gangs are also terribly tedious.
I would like to clarify a few things. Members of the Vine come from all over the world. This is not surprising as this is after all the world wide freaking web. For all of you who question the validity of ‘foreigners’ views, opinions and seeds I would suggest you should never have the audacity to seed of comment on a seed about any subject or event that does not take place on your shores ever again. You should also not seed from any international news sources; after all they have no validity, right? Once you do that you can start pointing the finger at others.
In the meantime if you do not like the fact that people other than Americans are members of this site and have the nerve to get involved can I suggest that you go find a website that only accepts Americans and you can enjoy the myopic, inward gazing, nationalistic view that brings. Hell I am sure you won’t have a problem joining; all you will probably need is the long form of your birth certificate to prove you are a ‘real’ American.
Seriously, if people ask politely I never have a problem talking about my interest and where it is derived from, but equally I owe no-one, friend or foe, an explanation for my membership of this community, and I am damned if I am going to allow a few of you to ruin what I generally find a really enjoyable experience.
So fair warning from now on any more snide comments about my nationality rather than commenting on the seed will be deleted. I have put up with it for 2 ½ years and this Brit Chick has had enough. I am sure I also speak for other members of this community who are deemed not quite 'right' enough by some of you.
