    Too dogmatic, and not like real life. I doubt that Germans, for example, are marginalized by being stereotyped as precise and hard-working.

    For a business name, saying 71 percent 'doesn't offend' isn't good actually. That's serious loss of 'goodwill' actually.

    That marginalizes artistic contributions, if I can presume your subjective view of 'precise' and 'hard-working'. You see, in your subjective definition of 'precise' and 'hard-working' lies the fraudulent nature of your social object (a stereotype).

    Not buying it, and neither would Germans.

    There are plenty of Germans that do not appreciate your small-minded stereotype. You're marginalizing anyone that doesn't submit to your lingo.

    What you call 'precise', others call simple. What you call 'hard-working', others call laborers.

    I lived in Germany for three years. They revel in that stereotype.

    Anyone that doesn't fit your definition of a German is left out, and your personal definition probably leaves a lot to be desired. Just because someone likes it does not mean it defines every German.

    Now who's a spokesperson for others, are you speaking for stupid people?

    I'm just saying that your sweeping, dogmatic assertion is at odds with real human experience and the way people lead their lives.
