Destructive criticism only indicates that the writer has no useful ideas of his/her own.
Far better to lead by example, and rise above such petty carping by accepting that everyone believes their own country (state, county, continent, etc.) to be 'the best', but also to accept that there are a few rotten apples in every barrel.
Citing those rotten apples as typical behaviour is neither fair nor accurate.
May we have some postings to redress the balance, or shall we let this thread die here and now?
