Well I am part of the Rest of the World, here from Singapore!...not exactly the best country to live in, but it's safe from smart criminals. Yes, most of our crooks are pretty dim.

Hi :-)

It could be that many people do not join or read the forums and just log in to do the quizzes so therefore do not see this poll? I just recently joined the Forums despite the fact that I have been on FT for a couple of years, as an example.

The poll is only a lighthearted one, not seriously trying to get the demographics of the site. We were just teasing the Australian contingent as they seem to be numerous, either that or just vocal.

Another rest of the world here, although technically I could be a brit as I have a british passport, but.. I was born in the Falkland Islands, lived in the UK for 16 years and am now happily into my 23rd year as a Kiwi.

I'm sorta surprised that the Aussies didn't try to claim all the Kiwi's as well, just to boost their numbers

Another Brit here. I'm not surprised at the results, they're very similar to breakdown of players in the team I'm in.

Please read the first post in the thread, as you will see it is a lighthearted poll teasing our Australian friends initially. It isn't to be taken seriously.

Oh that's just crazy talk! It's like you think we have claimed Kiwis as our own before ...

You left out Scotland? Shame,, shame.

Why would it be racist to ask someone what country they are from?



Janetgool, the "racist" thing was mentioned by Trigger7 with regard to another topic in another Forum.
So that is not about this poll.

And Trigger...

I think you might have misunderstood what Sue said in that other topic - she simply said that nobody would post any negative opinion (criticism) as an answer to that person's question - because answering with a negative comment would mean "racism".
I'm sure you're aware that, usually, when someone says anything negative about a nation it's taken as *racism*.

Anyway...let's not discuss a different topic in here any further. Please?


Any chance we could just have fun with this little poll. There's nothing "off" about it at all. It's just for fun, nothing else.
