Twice.

I'd include the links but I don't know how to do that on the iPad.

But your thread title was the best.

As an Aussie feeling an illogical sense of guilt by association those threads went on longer than I was comfortable with.

Actually, someone at the club claimed to know them. Small world.

Aw Matt, you shouldn't worry so much! Consider how many absolute losers can be found in the USA. I bet they outnumber the Aussie ones by more than 10 to 1 (as in the population differences). We yotties are not our brothers' nor our countrymens' keepers (thank goodness!).

I reckon the world will get over this incident, and some may forget the nationality of the perps!

Cheers,

Jim
