      @Amieazing,

      Baby where you come from does not matter to me.

      I just want to make friends and legitimately make money online. So the question id what can I help you with and what can you hlp me with and the symbiotic relationship continues.

      Well, I meet people here from all around the world. I don't even get the impression most Hubbers are American, even if the site is.
      BTW, I too am from England.

        I was once accused of being the head of an "international gang of Hubbers," in an email that CCed Geraldo Rivera and the Attorney General's office.  It is one of my very favorite conspiracy theories (and yes, there are plenty) about me/HP as a whole.

            It was hard to decipher... The emails from this fella were always extremely long and without paragraph breaks.  They were written in such a way that they seemed like they should make sense, but somehow, they did not at all.

        Cagsilposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        Well, right now you are in the forums. The forums here move pretty quick, depending on the number of people paying attention to a thread/topic.

        The political and religious forums are the roughest places to be, so a suggestion is to stay out of those- if you're thin skin.

        If you're not taking Pearldiver's remarks as humorous then, I would suggest staying out of the "political" and "religious" forums.

        However, you're welcome to do as you please, mine is only a suggestion.

        As for being impatient, well, that could work against you and frustrate the hell out of you, depending. It's hit or miss. As for the wanting of 200000 followers...it isn't likely to happen. But, good luck with that. smile

        The founding missionaries in NZ taught Kiwis that Sarcasm is not the lowest form of wit at all...

    Ok.  has anyone ever read a book called something like "The Hyphening of America"? 
    If you were born in the U.S. then you are American, folks.
    No one cares about anyone who is here LEGALLY--no matter what their origins.
    My late ex-mother-in-law lived most of her life as a legal resident of the US/Canadian simply because her late hubby wanted to move to New Zealand and it's easier for Canadians to move to NZ than Americans.  Eventually she decide to become an American citizen and took the proper steps to do so.
    Anyway, the answer to the original question is NO not everyone here is an American but HP is based in America.
    I always find it interesting how these things go from "yes" or "no" questions to long discussions of other topics.

    It really doesn't matter how many Americans are on this site.  Canada pretty much stays on top of them - being situated over the 49th and all, eh?  big_smile

      Yes, but America doesn't seem to be buckling under the weight, somehow. big_smile
      I think we Canadians have the larger land mass anyway.  So there cool

      Hello Amie, and welcome.

      HubPages is a fun and interesting place with lots of people who are the same, fun and interesting.

      I myself am proud to be an American, but I have lived in Germany and Romania, visited England and Scotland and lots of European countries in between.

      I love the international flavor we have here on HubPages!

      Just remember there's a reason why so many people from OTHER countries are now legally living here in America!
