Lord Brawl, you make it sound like a bad thing... you should know better than that. I'm surprised there isn't a separate site. For whatever reason, the Canadian government (as I'm sure you know) is forever protecting us from those bad Yankee's to the south... :)

To address your points, though;

  1. The separate site would ensure adequite Canadian content on the site, because that is an important part of protecting us from the evils that lurk to the south.
  2. The French translation could only make things better for those who wished would be given the opportunity to learn another language.
  3. The downvote comment is somewhat true; at least for me. I prefer to find good nodes to vote up rather than bad ones to vote down. But it's funny how we are always thought of as being nice.
  4. I would love to see the 'proper' spelling of 'U' words all over the place... that is a serious pet-peeve of mine. But in a global environment, I guess I can't be picky.
