Do you think it's disrespectful of WikiAnswers to automatically abbreviate the name of a country?

Answer 1I don't know which country you are from, but I do know it is common practice to abbreviate the spelling of a country. I am from the US, and rarely see it spelled out as the United States of America.Answer 2The asker of this question lists his location as New York City (spelled out), I am a citizen of the United States and New York State and I do not believe it is at all disrespectful to abbreviate the name of the country or the state. To me, it is far more important to be a good citizen and show my respect for my country with my actions. I don't believe that most residents of the US or NYS feel it is disrespectful.
