No it's not and I'm sorry if you think it is.
I wanted to say that imo being polite, helpful, kind, respectful, have a positive aura, whatever is seen positive in every society, be it Ukrania, China, Turkey, Germany, Nigeria or the US. If this is not the case, please tell me that polite people are seen as bad-mannered in your part of the US. I doubt that but because you (not only you, more Fuuma etc.) bashed Louis XIV for helping old people etc - at least that's what I interpreted - I sarcastically said that your society is the only one in which these habits are not positive (I could have said US society in comparison to every other society, but again, I didn't believe so and was just giving a broad hint)
