I’ve had plenty of people thank me for specifically and correctly calling USAmericans USAmericans because - when you actually care about being accurate instead of being stupidly general - Canadians, Mexicans and everyone from South America are, without a doubt, also Americans living on the Americas.
Accuracy is important.
In modern English, North and South America are generally considered separate continents, and taken together are called America or the Americas in the plural. When conceived as a unitary continent, the form is generally the continent of America in the singular.
I refuse to do what the Average Joe does, aka lumping them all together. The fact that people who live on the Americas, but aren’t USAmericans, actually THANK ME for it should tell you something.
I am not deflecting anything. This is a forum on the internet and it’s not actually filled with the smartest cookies, also thanks to the fact that there is no paywall and no heavy moderation making sure there are high standards (like on StackExchange, for example).
I am beginning to think that you are reading too much, too often around here and that the average has started affecting your ability to think straight. Just like in every social environment the people you hang out with affect and influence you, and in an environment like this one that’s definitely not a good thing.
You’ll eventually just end like all the others. Growing more and more bitter until you had enough, snap, and get banned yet again. Usually people blame CCP for that and never actually self reflect on what they did wrong. I’ve gone through the whole length of bans in the past and it took me a long, good while to figure out why my behaviour keeps changing the longer I’m around. I’ve figured it out and I hope for you that you will too.
You’re a shadow of your past self. Seriously. You lowered your standards down to the average, which around here, is rock bottom.
