If I am not mistaken, you have been criticized to "attacking" people's sell threads and starting telling them about cheaper alternatives. Many Finns do that too, and no one likes it.
Finns in general are not hostile to foreigners.[/quote]
which means the people who were complaining are perfectly fine with ripping off newbies, and therefore it is safe to say that those people are in this forum mostly because they care about money and they are not here to make friends.
(By the way, couple of people contacted me by PM after that incident, and totally agreed with my point.)
Not to mention the people who complain when I post in English in Finnish threads, or people who send me to the 'English' sub forum, where I can happily post messages that no one will ever read.
People everywhere are xenophobic in nature, Finns are no different.
Luckily, there are plenty of exceptions to this rule.
