Mmm, like I said, far too much sensitivity being displayed and personal attacks on other contributors don't help. Maciamo's view on Greece is not unusual, in fact his is a typical example of most who do not live in the region. It is not because he is ignorant nor arrogant it is because of the wrong perception given and the misinformation spread by the media. And we in Greece are not doing ourselves any favours if we are going to take everthing uttered about Greece as a personal insult, instead of explaining the situation calmly and clearly.
After listening to the stupidity of reports and the hype on Greece by the BBC, CNN and Der Spiegel over the last few months I've got to wonder if there is any situation in the world where we are given an accurate account in which we can trust.
