On a different topic, having had my heritage slandered I just do not feel good about being on Ask Andy anymore, but I felt my last comment deserved clarification.
Just FYI, this is the second time that OP has done this following a perceived slight or someone disagreeing with him.I've gone and re-read the entire thread to see where the offense was committed and found none. I then searched via your posts and saw the slight..
Look, I'm new here so my input has little to no bearing on your final decision but it is members like you that have drawn me to and kept me here on these forums.
I'm sure I am not alone in saying you would be missed.
On a lighter note, as a man of Italo-Finn descent I too have felt the sting of stereotypical derision.
Why just yesterday some insensitive SOB joke within earshot joked:
How can you tell a Finnish extrovert from a Finnish introvert? The Finnish introvert will look at his shoes while he is talking to you, the extrovert will look at yours.
