I think that Africa and Asia should be included. South America too.

I can't go back and alter it now but the whole point was...

I'm a British export so I voted that but husband also plays and he's from the U.S. (though he grew up in Europe). All my children were born in Jerusalem and they play with me sometimes so they go under 'rest of the world'.
Ah but I can't put in three votes, such is life.
My kids have triple citizenship, one son lives and works in New Jersey and another is in the Israeli army and in the past I've taken kids back to U.K. to meet the relatives... never a dull moment.
I don't complain that my mother in law lives 7000 miles away

Just voted American and we're at 37%. I am mostly pure British heritage though. Paternal grandfather and grandmother came here by ship in 1920's from England and my maiden name IS Spencer. Can I "split" my vote? Just kidding Sue.

Sue, I cannot see the results. I know it has to do with my "variable" isp address as has been covered already in this thread. So, could you please post the most recent results? Thanks much. June

I must say that we, Argentine people, reject to be considered as the rest of the world as if we were the left-outs of a meal.
It should have been more polite if you included a group called Latin Americans
or Hispanic Americans.
The world does not end in Europe and the United states, thank Heaven.

Please read the first post. This was/is a light-hearted poll done because we seem to have a lot of Australians, or at least they seem like a lot.

If we had a section for Latin America we would need to do one for Africa, one for India, Asia, Middle East and so forth. The majority of our members, as you can see, come from four basic areas, 80% of member come from either the USA, Canada, Australia and the UK.

No slur is intended but we have to be realistic, we have very few members from South America so they might not make up even 1%.

What is wrong to have one for Africa or one for india or Asia ? Do they not come up to your standard ?
Is it a matter of being realistic or looking them down your shoulder ?
We have very few Latin American but what matters is quality and not quantity.
I am positiveli certain that you will refuse to water us.
