When you say insulted your nation, do you mean to say he said something
racist, or something more like "Hey Australia, your last Prime Minister
sucked. What were you thinking" - both are insulting, one would be
outrageous, the other would make me roll my eyes and say "don't look at me,
I did my bit".
This is less about ostracising users/equating Mint with MS and more about
racism, to my mind.
The essence of a rant, in fact, is that the ranter has no idea how to fix
the thing being ranted about.
