There are some pretty rotten "English" people as well. You shouldn't link them all together for what a few may do. Our society has just as many crooks as theirs does. Just use your head, regardless of who you are doing business with.

once again i agree with MISTAKEN.. ther is good and bad in every culture, county, town, village, state, and yes even religion... so it is very judgemental and unfair link them all together based on the actions of a few.. grow up and think about what your saying... that would be like me saying your a stupid bastard based on what someone in your neighborhood did to me... it just dont make sense ... like mistaken said.. use your head regardless of who your doing business with
