Gee... I use Amerikkka and KKKanada all the time -- but then again
I know where I fit in _your_ hierarchy...
Why should you care even??
Actually, my take on it is that since EVERYONE in North and South
America are `americans', MIM is using `amerika' to denote the U.S. proper
-- without having to engage in verbal gymnastics every time they do -- or
just accepting the default chauvinism of its everyday usage.
Stop being so petty -- it's unbecoming an important editor such as
yourself... Is being seen as `mainstream' so important to you??
