Forums > Travel Yunnan > Changes to train to Vietnam Border

Related to my last post (and as as long as I'm being didactic): For anybody interested in better understanding the origins of some central aspects of American national character and culture, I recommend reading "Albion's Seed: Four British Folkways in America" by David Hackett Fischer.

That is an understandable misconception common among foreign consumers of American media such as Big Bang Theory. But the US military is disproportionately made up of rough and tumble Scotch-Irish from Appalachia and the Ozarks. A very different breed from the Chobani sippers of Santa Barbara that you probably have in mind.

@Ishmael wrote "no point in hiding the real past"

My motivation was not to hide anything in order to make myself look better or otherwise serve my own interest. Rather, the intent was to invite the potential removal of a post that at least one person found slanderous, because slander can be harmful. Athough I still don't believe that the post constituted slander, reasonable people can disagree about these sorts of things and I would rather err on the side of avoiding harm.

@Ishamael wrote: "Actually I don't care about the post per se, but about the idea of appealing to a higher authority to cancel it."

I think my phrasing in addressing myself to the moderators ("if it comes across that way", "I would be happy for the moderators to remove that post... as they see fit") shows that I meant to invite them to exercise their judgement, rather than to make an appeal.

@michael2015: OK, that perspective hadn't occurred to me when I was writing. If anything, I saw the post as complimentary, portraying him as a romantic international polymath. But I can see how it could come across the wrong way.

I would be happy for the moderators remove that post and any related ones as they see fit. And I appreciate the compliments otherwise.

If that is directed at my post, I didn't see it as slander in the slightest, just a light jest that nobody would take seriously for a second.

But if it comes across that way, then I apologize and request that the moderators delete it. I would have deleted it myself at this point just to be on the safe side, but the edit function has already been deactivated on that post for some reason.

"Pain campagnard" (or more commonly "pain de campagne") is a specific name used by bakeries in France for a particular type of bread. Just calling something "country bread" in English could mean anything.
