I know this is off-topic, but for once I won't apologise.
This is an international newsgroup read and contributed to by people all
over the world. Has it occurred to you that a posting like this may be
just a little bit offensive to those of us who don't live in the USA,
especially those of us here in the UK, supposedly your "special friends"?
You seem to be equating "outside the USA" with "bad", and you seem to
think that only people outside the USA produce spam - when the truth is
that the USA generates more spam than most other countries.
And, talking in practical terms - are you sure that none of those that
your web site is aimed at are ever going to travel outside the USA?
