Public chatrooms are rarely a decent and efficient way to poll the general intelligence and/or opinion of people, as you said yourself, they are
usualy ignorant troll infested hellholes.
Could I ask you what chatroom it was?
Some MSN, AIM, YAHOO, public IRC?
(EDIT: just reread, the dude has an AOL email addy, that says enough for me ...)
People joining that kind of public chatrooms are mainly kids or people that discovered the internet and think chatrooms make them cool and makes them
think they can say whatever they want, without ever thinking.
Don't go on 1 experience, you wife knows that her home country doesn't have that kind of opinion towards american people. You know it too, and thats
why this shocked you so much.
