The ones who keep coming back with the "but, but I'm not a separatist nor do I live in Quebec so I have license to offer up an opinion without it being subject to challenge". All those ones.

or it could be all of these:

Yeah Quebec has a good thing going kinda like living at home with Mom and Dad.
You sound frustrated about all of this. Too bad that white anglo privilege is gone, unlike the good ol' days where you any anglo Canadian could command someone to "speak white". I think you know we have all considered leaving Canada to form our own independent state but that is always an option. There is no reason to rush to independence at the moment. I suggest that if you are this unhappy in Quebec you should leave. Things in Quebec are only becoming more and more Quebecois rather than anglo Canadian and it might be time to come to terms with the fact that those days are never coming back.

Oh please...this guy jambo101 prefers to push anglicize Quebec so that he can get the royal treatment and you want to rationalize with him? Don't bother with it. Do we really need people like that getting anymore attention than they already get? No, no not at all.

Oh brother!

Talk about deflection; you just attempted the mother of them all. A 180 degree deflection is rare but accomplished relatively easily if you use a mirror.

Ah yes the usual Anglophobic snide comment, victim mentality and superiority complex all rolled into one.
If you had understood a word i've said in my posts over the years youd know i have no problem with the general francophone population of Quebec but only with Anglophobes like yourself and a Quebec government obsessed with passing evermore linguistic rules and regulations aimed at the eradication of my Anglo culture.

And here you have the classic example of the attitude that wants all Anglos out of Quebec.
Do we really need people who may protest against Quebecs draconian language laws? nah lets get rid of em all eh!..
Not to worry No Manners Quebecs mission is close to a successful completion as i seem to be the only Quebec Anglo left who has a problem with Quebecs excessive language laws.Any other Quebec Anglos on this board either arent troubled with Quebec language laws or they have been so totally assimilated that they now consider themselves francophones.
