Hm, well I can understand why RAC would be concerned about this - they must have received complaints about jobs not getting done on time because of light nahin hai!

The commenters seem to be doing an okay job of defending us though :)

What has that got to do being against Pakistan. They're just reacting to the complaints they have received and the media portrayal (of reality?) of the current deteriorating conditions in Pakistan.

It’s not propaganda if that’s what seems to be the feeling. RAC has a genuine concern regarding unfinished transactions – it hurts their image, and I imagine their pocket as well – they’re right to be worried about it! The thing that’s disheartening is that its another blow to our already weak international image or perception. Hey, we’re already the ‘most dangerous country in the World’ but at least this market was doing reasonably well. RAC’s implied negativity in that post is sure to be taken my many of their customers as “steer clear of Pakistanis”. This will hurt the business and reputations of many of the Pakistani coders out there.

Maybe I think RAC could have been a little less harsh with that.
