Not only that, but a goodly portion of folks can't tell when an
non-American language _is_ done well.  There was a young lad from
Scotland at Pennsic some years ago (from Glasgow - his heavily
accented English doesn't sound like the typical movie-style Highlander
Scots accented English).  He was told to stop trying to sound like a
Scot, 'cause he wasn't any good at it.
