    No actually, it doesn't. If the OP was from Ireland, and did not qualify the question with the term 'Irish', would you naturally assume he was referring to subtle county accents? An international site is an international site, irrespective of where the server is based.

    But to attempt to answer the OP's question, I think the clearest, most pleasant sounding American accent is the one Noam Chomsky uses. I have no idea where in the US that is from, but it is nowhere near as nasal as most American accents.

    Yeah, but you British murder the English language.

    I hear a lot of Wisconsin, S. Carolina and Texas accents here - mostly because of Ft. Leavenworth. We don't get a lot of International Officers here except for Saudi, and I don't really care for their accents at all.

    There was a family moved in a few houses down and he has that kind of accent that reminds me a Gomer Pyle.. talk about grating on the nerves. Eesshh. "Well Goooooollll-EY!" Yuck.
    You don't like the SC accent? I used to have one of those and it comes out sometimes, especially when I want to be charming.

    Southern is too broad.

    Sorry, but all you Americans sound the same.

    I know,
    Where does southern change to northern? Above DC? When does it change to Midwest? Does it include Texas? Creole?
    And is Florida actually a southern state?

    But one thing we can agree on;

    There is no excuse for the New England accent....
