We welcome and love foreigners and have given forums in which foriegn politics can be talked about. But its hardly unusual for people to post from an American mindset asking things about Americans on a board that is primarily US focused.

    Oh god, Yoopers. My mom's family is from Michigan and we took a trip up there once. Yeah, they're...interesting.

    Amen to that. Been doing finger printing for interviews recently so got people from all over the place. I could pick out Alabama, Georgia, and the Carolina's people a good portion of the time before I got to "place of birth" just in how they sounded while saying hello and asking for their name.

    Well, if that's the case, fine. But it is hardly welcoming people from other places to say this place is primarily for Americans, but we will tolerate you as long as you put the views we wish to hear. I thought it was an international board. My mistake - there is a world elsewhere.

    Interesting thread - I never considered accents to be anything other than just an accent.

    It's true. Journalism schools try and "rid" anchors of their accents prior to getting a job.

    Midwestern is considered "normal", which is why it's not considered an accent at all. Not sure what accent Californians have...from my POV they all sound like me.

    But one thing we can agree on;

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

    Who cares what guys sound like!

    Midwest has the best accent, which is to say none. East coast is probably the second worst, with the Appalachia/backwoods Tennessee being the worst.

    But a cute girl with a sweet southern accent (like Georgia accent) is hard to resist.

    Can I vote for British? Although I wouldnt send my worst enemy there as punishment,folks always sound just a little more civilized and cultured when speaking with a British accent.
    Someone told me once that there's a right and wrong,
    and that punishment would come to those who dare to cross the line. - TooL
