That is sort of a funny comment.

By default, you are anonymous on CP. Adding a nickname and personal information is optional. I think that the statements made by any person, should be jugdged by its contents, regardless of who makes the statement. So I have left the CP defaults untouched.

Every now and then, I write posts where my nationality or cultural background is essential for the understanding of what I write, and then I indicate this clearly in my statement. If I do not, I consider my nationality to be insignificant. Judge what I say, not by who I am!

That is also the reason why I have not set up a nickname. While some readers may learn and recognize my "member number", and correlate my statements in one discussion with those of another, to the majority of readers, a member number is "someone", so they can relate to what I write in that post, regardless of who I am.

When you obviously consider what I say based on the assumption that I am from the USA, you are obviously free to do so, even if it isn't correct. I have deliberately left CP defaults untouched: When an assumed US nationality steers the readers' understanding of what I say, so would it be steered if I change it to my true, Norwegian nationality. I prefer not to have my statements rejected, praised or whatever, based on my nationality, but by the statements alone. I defeat such judgements by leaving the defaults untouched.

I really do not understand why CP cannot handle an unspecified nationality in the same way as an unspecified nickname.
