I hope I can speak for everyone when I say we're generally not fans of stereotypes on this site, they lead to inflammatory posts and generally are regarded as ignorant, is there any particular reason for your need?

I agree with Mim completely on this one. Though, I did choose the "wait and see" approach before commenting. And I, too, am curious as to your "need" for this type of information...

There have been "stereotype" threads in the past and all the ones (since I have been a member) have spurred negative and inflammatory comments - which ultimately lead to a number of edits and deletions. Personally, I don't care for such threads because they do become problematic.

For those who choose to post here, please remember the Forum Rules. Thinking twice before posting is usually a good rule of thumb for avoiding un-necessary conflicts. Thank you.

i assume you mean harmless stero-types like Australians saying geday mate and other stereo-typical type slang

Do you mean stereotypes as in "characteristics"? Or maybe you're looking for stereotypes because you're putting together a thesis on stereotypes from around the world? That could be interesting. Can you clarify so we'll know how to best help you out...?

Yes, if you are going to be using peoples responses for something positive - exposing the ignorance and stupidity of cultural stereotypes - then I am all for it.
