Nope, I did the oposite: I already had a generalisation in mind, and used it to try to understand the posting of one persone with a Chinese name.

Mind you, cultural traits of nations are a reality. I'm a Franco/Brazilian guy living in Vietnam, and I have seen it well enough. It doesn't mean that since you're from country X you will do Y, but it helps in understanding general behaviors.

edit: excellent book on this topic: When Cultures Collide, by Richard Lewis
