I'm sure the russians, indians and chinese are going to like that. :)

Petty nationalists will never change it seems
The same as 99% of the threads here, in reality this section should have been closed down along time ago. Almost nobody here has the slightest interst in actual travel just nationalistic chest thumping about locations in there own country they've probabley never even visited.

Is this a forum to discuss travel and geography or is it a place for forumers to promote their country's tourist industry?
In more than a few cases it goes beyond that aswell, I got temp banned for objecting to an indonesian poster putting up a load of pics of "happy west papuan tribes people" waving the indonesnian flag.

This place literally has zero discussion, its just an embarrising outlet for nationalistic kids.

I think there's no problem in people promoting the beauties of their countries here. So, we can see the beauties of several different countries, and maybe decide to visit one or another in the future... For example: seeing photos of Algeria here made me have a desire to visit Algeria some day...
I wouldnt single out this thread as any worse(and a good deal better than many) here in that reguard. Nationalism generally is a big problem on these forums so you can't really single out this section but the discussion here is pretty much non existant. What relivance to travel does BRIC have? is anyone really sitting at home working out there holiday plans based on economic devolpment? ;)

If you want to post photo's then why not limate it to the photography section? If you want to promote your home nation here then it should be much more a question of details and answering questions others might have.

If theres no interest in such discussion here then this section should simpley be closed, personally I think there could be some good discussion but its buried under a tide of nationalistic spam.
