    It's usually not a problem unless that person is American. See here down under we don't naturally assume everyone is an ass.

    Just like here on Slashdot we don't assume the summaries are correct, or that people have RTFA which says that devices must still be in flight mode just no longer turned off, in which case I would seriously question why the person next to you is having a loud conversation with nobody.
