Hi all involved or concerned.

I think that generalising should maybe only occur when it is obvious to all 
that the majority of such a group is so and so.

I believe that tough we form a group, we are all infdividuals even before we 
are an official representative of how our nationality is "supposed" to be.

So, no matter how "overbearing" someone can be, this person is the one being 
it, and not the country.

I myself have met many people online from the USA, and the majority have 
been positive encounters and there was lots of open-minded sharing of 
information and opinions.
