    Ethnicity / Meta-Ethnicity Unknown

    Why do people like this sign up to Skadi Forum if they do not even know their own Ethnicity / Meta Ethnicity? It's annoying and kind of arrogant. Why should we respond to their posts if we don't know who we're dealing with.

    Maybe he's not familiar with various ethnic and/or anthropoligical terms. If he's American, maybe he has no idea what his ancestry is other "White" (assuming he's White). There are many Americans with English surnames & ancestry, who've never thought of themselves as be English, Anglo-Saxon or Anglo-American. I've discussed this many times before, many Americans of predominately English or other British descent do not think of themselves as having an ethnicity. Ethnicity is something other then English. And many people might be puzzled by the phrase "Meta-Ethnicity".



    Edit: Based on his posts, I would say he was looking for classifications of his friends, tried to bring up Skadi & was redirected to Thealthing. He mentioneds his ancestry is German in one of his posts.

    Yeah maybe I over-reacted, I was in a bad mood. That's my first bad post on the forum.

    Well the point in a sense remains.

    Bad mood or not, it's a valid point. I tend to ignore these types myself--other than keeping an eye on them, me being a staff member, mind you.

    But Americ has a good point as well--a lot of white Americans don't know much about ethnicity other than "white"....

    I once lurked in a forum named Soviet Empire and I noticed that there was some crazy NatBol poster named interrupt there. (Think of Constantin Hoffmeister but crazier)

    Could be the same guy.
