Do You Favour Particular Nations When Choosing Which Discussion To Read?

At present there are many countries in different time zones online on mylot. I enjoy the diversity of cultures on here and there is much to learn from varying nations. I do like to connect with others from the UK but don't favour their discussions over those in other places. Do you read posts from all over the world or stick with a few nations?

I am an all-over-the-world visitor. I have learned so much by reading posts from all nations.

@JudyEv It makes for a better world, I believe, when people of all nations communicate in a friendly manner with each other. MyLot does so much more than just allowing users to write a post here and there.

I stick with what interests me no matter who writes it. That being said I'll favour a political discussion about the UK over one from other places.

I don't see many political discussions fro the British. It's certainly a topical subject now. I find it interesting when other nations try and give their take on our political situation.

I don't pick by country - I pick by who I like and what the topic is. I do have a hard time reading some. Even through they are in English its like reading between the lines.

Yes that can be difficult at times. I usually ask for clarification if I'm unsure. I do get confused by American English terms at times.

@AbbyGreenhill I used the term I would come a cropper on somebody's discussion. I had to clarify that it meant I would come to a bad end. I never knew what a hiney was a few months ago.

Well I flew down the comments and found one you made about a religious figure but decided I'd comment here as this figure has not yet found me @Gillygirl but from what I can figure about this figure he's actually making more money by what he's doing than most which is probably all he wants here in the first place. I've seen a few of the discussions he's posted but I get the wrong impression from what little I've seen so I don't respond to his junk.

I read any post I find interesting and answerable. There was one member from a country close to mine whose discussions with questions were pathetic, ridiculous, and so boring, that it was impossible to give a meaningful response.

I do look at the country as my response can depend on culture. I once used the phrase 'that's a shame'. The user thought I meant a certain thing was shameful.

@Gillygirl I check before replying for the same reason. Some users do not mention their country, but they start the discussion saying "it's a custom in our country...", that is very silly.

I read and respond to people from any country, Gillian! It just wouldn't feel right if I singled out one country to inflict myself on, if you understand what I mean... I am on myLot to have fun and help others to enjoy themselves while here, too! If I also happen to make a penny or two during my playing, then I will gracefully accept it. If I don't, then I am not going to be overly upset about that, either.

@Gillygirl Until recently, I thought you were from USA. It was that post on your friend and the gondolier that I saw England beside your name. If I don't understand the post then I do check the nation to determine whether the person is a native English speaker or not. It helps me get the gist of the post

@Daljinder I once made a mistake. For some reason I had in my head that a certain user was from Canada. I made a comment about the weather in Canada. I cringed when she reminded me she was from the USA.

@Gillygirl I check out newbies and 'no responses' from time to time. In my daytime it can get really slow here and that's when I might go elsewhere than just to those I'm following.

I consider myself a world traveler on this site. I like visiting all nations and all peoples and interacting with them. I have learned so much about the world just from this site. I do not limit myself to particular countries when reading or commenting on posts. However, I think by default, I probably interact with more people from the United States than anywhere, but only because this is where I live and more Americans are active when I'm active (due to time zones and all). But, with that being said, I still look for diversity when I'm scrolling through posts to read.

@Gillygirl That is true, I never really thought of it from that perspective. But, I still like reaching out to those from other countries around the world. It's fun to see how life is in other places! It also reminds me that we're all much more alike than we think, despite our different cultures, religions and political views.
