    It's a pointless question. There are 140 mln. of Russians. Do you think they are all the same?

    Before replying so seriously to this comment, maybe you read the title of the thread? And see the smiley?

    Or you only can notice the words "Why Americans hate Russians", but are not able to notice the question "Why Russians hate Americans"?

    Scott, I think saying just "someone's remark is stupid" is not very clever either.[/quoteit9r349]


    Sorry Оля I didn't know all of your comments were jokes.

    Like many other questions of this kind, had that question been totally pointless, there wouldn't be something which is called Sociology. I think jouna was just looking for a trend. But I highly doubt any single person could give an answer better to "everyone is different." So, probably an adequate poll should have been created. How representative that poll would be, that's another question.

    Writing it like that sounds like you may be jesting or feigning indignation. It's better to write:
    American culture is indeed superficial. (you don't need the word "the".)

    Well, it's the wrong place for this kind of polls. I suspect you can squeeze like 10-20 votes out of us, but not more. Not very representative. ))

    Olya, your native tongue will always be the language of your emotions, so when you try to express emotions quickly in a foreign language things can get messy.

    Before replying so seriously to this comment maybe you should read the title of the thread. Do you see the smiley? Did you only see the words "Why Americans hate Russians" buy were unable to see the question "Why Russians hate Americans"? Scott, saying that "someone's remark is stupid" is not very clever. (you don't need the word either since you're not comparing Scott's action to anything.)
