I agree ... However its not just this issue. I have seen many times peopleo both sides creating a D&D and when someone from another country offers advice (either good or bad) they're told that its none of their business. Was just wondering if people think there needs to be some seperation to prevent misunderstanding and hostility.

No, that'd be stupid.

I see it in cultural differences such as circumcision (about half of babyi boys are still circ'd and I know in the other active countries on here -Australia, UK, Canada- it is a very small percentage. I don't think separating by country would be fun.....part of the fun in D&D (to me anyways) is seeing that difference I may not ever see in person.

Right, because America as a country and Americans as loudmouth citizens have NEVER butted into the affairs of another country :lol:

no, I love seeing the differences in different countries.. how we view things.

there will always be "not your business" posts... but they're ignorant people who forget this is an open online forum.

I know exactly what you are talking about and no because I doubt very much they butt out of other peoples business.

Quoting The (super kinky) Master:" ... Refrain from taking part in threads that aren't relevent to their own country? Should there be a section of BG specifically for international members to post and the main site be for US only?"


No. BUT, i think people should be mature enough to understand that what works in one country may not work in another country.
It makes for interesting D & D unless/until people get ugly about one country being far superior to another becasue of X.

and there's been an increasing amount of this. I'm finding that there's a lot more 'them and us' mentally in recent months, from both sides and was wondering if people thought that there should be separation of the cultures.

For me it's "what makes the world go 'round."
I like our differences.

This didn't stem from your thread ... in fact I don't even know if I had seen your thread when I posted this. This was in fact due to a large amount of people in the US telling myself and a few other women on here (mostly UK I think), basically that we had no idea what we're talking about because we're not American. This happened even in our own threads about topics unrelated to the US and its politics. Sure the latest tragedy and the whole gun debate has brought all this to a head, but it was something I've noticed before then as well.

No and I don't ... its an all round issue. I've just been told in another D&D about marriage that it isn't an international discussion, yet in the OP the US was never mentioned. This is the type of thing I'm talking about

Oh I agree .... and even sometimes with politics if I'm told to butt out that's cool. However when its a 'personal' opinion D&D (like this one was), it annoys me that everything is always automatically US by default and anyone from another country should go by American rules.

I don't mind for the most part and I even didn't mind when my own TTC thread was ripped apart by a few American women because they thought I was irresponsible being TTC without at least $5,000 saved for medical costs. :roll:



But recently its really started to get to me ... and I know this happens on both sides that sometimes Americans are ripped to pieces by people from other countries. So I was just wondering what people thought about having a US and International D&D

Quoting Legendary Amanda:" Yeah definitely not. And LOL! Medical savings? Wtf is that even? "


I know :) it was hilarious because the only medical thing I paid out of pocket for my entire pregnancy was a $200 3D ultrasound for my anatomy scan.
