UTC & hostile Americans

Today, Flickr shut down their web site. I think that they quickly realised that most people around the world don’t understand PDT. So they included a time zone conversion link.

So I made a comment as I have done several times before when some American group who should know better (mostly the US Space industry) that they should work in UTC. Another of my favourite complaints is those who announce things by season. When it is spring in the northern hemisphere it is autumn here.

Here are some screen shots of the hostile response and the user (@ASDjournalist) who did the rant.
