Ironically, if I were an American visiting either Australia or the UK, and the same thing happened to me, I'd get the same treatment for free. THAT irritates me
Actually, that *isnt* true.
We charge Americans (or their insurers more likely) for care required here while on holiday. We have reciprocal agreements in place with the rest of the EU and a few places besides for mutual free treatment of each others' citizens (eg. Aus), but we don't extend that privilege to countries which charge ours.
Also, *compilers* should also be written to standards too, as well as code.
Don't let them off the hook too easily.
If all the compilers stuck rigidly to standards, you'd never be able to have code that compiled with one and not the other.
