I'd like to see a change in attitude towards Scottish people on Metafilter.

Seeing my poor countryman practically meta stoned to death a few posts below -
I think our US-centric mefites really need to extend the hand of warmth and friendship here - how happy would YOU be if your country didn't even warrant an entry on a drop down menu ?
Did we stop the US bid for indepence ? No ! apart from shooting a few of you in the battle of Georgetown, we've been extremely supportive - what are we getting in return ?
Accused of meanspiritedness ?
Let me paint a picture of my native land here:
It rains, it's grim, wolves howl in the wilderness - it rains again.
You go on holiday to local beach, which has a sewage pipe in the middle and it rains there too.
How positive do you expect us to be, stumbling out of the dark of the portobello sewage pipe for the first time ?
Please my chums, please remember that we complain out of affection - we say things are shite because we like them.
Therefore, please welcome us a bit more as we really do love you all very much. I personally promise to be nicer to everyone from here on in - even Stav.
Welcome us with open arms to your great american internet thing.
We're not Crunchland - We're Scotland.
