    My experiences have been different. The Brits are a diverse people consisting of more than just the English. You will find all types in the UK, much like anywhere else.

    WHAT? I haven't seen one tread from JL that has been NON - PC correct so why would the mods say anything? Most are humorous posts!

    You always have the option of not reading them or posting to them. JMHO

    I admit to playing a certain text based game (that was tough to admit to) that has it's servers based in the UK, where the creator lives. The majority of people who play it are from the UK and surrounding areas and the majority of them care very little and have an extremely poor attitude towards those of us who live across the pond. The site also has a forum which has a Non-Related (to the game) section and firearms topics come up quite often by American players and the majority of the UK players are down right, hardcore anti's.

    The majority of the firearm topics created are usually about people who have decided to get into guns and wish to protect themselves and their families. I politely post in their thread saying "If you have any questions, mail me." and refer them to this site. I've gotten about 15 or so people from there to join here.

    I found an issue with your diatribe...

    Britain still uses the imperial system.

    It would be nice to remember that there might be some liberal minded people on here before you start throwing stuff like "dirty liberals" around. Bad form as the British would say.

    Actually it's a bit of a grey area. When I was in school there we were taught both Imperial and Metric. The trend is moving toward Metric, even to the point where market vendors are required to sell in Metric or face a fine, but Imperial is still holding firm in some areas.

    We should convert to metric, it's so much easier.

    Indeed.

    Metric is incredibly easy.
