If someone was raised in a society where pointing out every flaw in someone is considered helpful, and then came to the U.S or the U.K or somewhere and started calling people fat, would it be right to blame them for this? While it isn't right, they still think they are doing the right thing, because they have always been told that.
If it has been explained to them that it is incredibly rude to do so, then yes, they can and should be held accountable for what they say. If they haven't explain it to them and go to step 1.

But to them, it is right, and they don't understand how you find it wrong. To them, not pointing these things out is rude.

I'm positive that pretty much all of the conflict that goes among 'fans' when it comes to video games or consoles is caused by expectations…

Which is why I pretty much never expect stuff :/

If you make a choice to live in a different society than the one you grew up in, you need to learn the social norms. So in your example, this person should be explained why this isn't acceptable in the society they have moved to. I have a flatmate from France, and I do what I can to explain what is and what isn't appropriate here, because no matter how little he can help it, he will suffer the consequences if he makes a social no-no, so it's better that he is explained why something he's used to isn't found acceptable over here.

Today is the super bowl. Which means it's the night I hoard snacks in my room and play loud music and hope I can't hear my mom's screaming over it.

"I already know how great it's" sounds so wrong, and yet it's right. Like, "I already know how great it is." is correct, and "it is" can be shortened to "it's", thus, "I already know how great it's". But it just sounds so wrong!

Meant to post this last night, but I was hyped watching Day 1-2 of Apex and there was a lot of hype. The Salty Suite was probably the best part aside seeing a Mega Man plowing through the Smash 4 pools. Can't wait for Day 3 to begin (after church of course).

On my mind right now is how awesome breakfast is going to be tomorrow. I'll wake up and then get a bowl of the newly rereleased French Toast Crunch. I'm so happy it is back on the shelves again. It doesn't look as dark and it isn't as glossy, so it will get soggy a bit faster; but overall it tastes the same and smells the same and I'm happy.
