    There isn't any problem, it's just that several people from other countries are irritated with any references that imply that most other people are Americans, because there is a strong international presence on this board. Don't worry, you didn't do anything. Out of curiousity, if you're a Thinking type, why do you care if you offended someone?

    Sorry about the miscommunication Uberfuhrer, I was not referring to you.


    I like for people to be upfront that is all. If I made an ignorant statement enlighten me versus using sarcasm-- sarcasm solves nothing. This has nothing to do with being a thinking type, if I said something wrong correct me. It only makes sense. I never said that I was from the USA, which I am, but I have yet to meet someone (until now apparently) from outside the USA who was offended by the term "foreign film". An enlightening moment for me

    Ok, I just spoke with a friend. Correct me if we are wrong, but the term I should have used was international film.

    Yes, that would probably be more correct. Although I think it's sad that we have to watch our tongues that carefully to avoid offending people, but I suppose I'm willing to tolerate such an inconvenience, because I don't want to hurt anyone.

    This is getting a little out of hand. I find the notion of my nation being foreign amusing. Nothing more, nothing less. I don't find it irritating, I find it funny.

    This is a total tangent, but most posters here are in the American time zones (poll). Take it from a European who always misses out on forum prime time.

    Oh, and watcher24, welcome (back).

    When I realized what the problem was, I got over it. So there are no problems here anymore. I'm adjusting to the overall atmosphere of the forum.

    Thanks to all of the welcome's (including yours darlets)

    That is exactly what I saw when i read your "Oh reallllllly" lol, that you found it amusing, I find it amusing when americans consder brit movies to be foreign, even though they are foriegn to them when you think about it.

    Hi watcher , welcome to mbti....again is it?

    I like foreign films too, best one this year would be pan's labyrinth, I watch chinese and japanese, only just started getting into thai films, could you recommned a korean film to me?
