That's just silly. Reading through many other threads, people seem to mention their nationality when introducing themselves, obviously it's more prevalent in foreigners posts, none the less it wasn't inappropriate of her to state that. Why should you take offence to that? Australia's a multicultural country, so the term 'Aussie' is quite broad. I don't go around calling myself Italian, I identify myself as Australian, especially after travelling, there is nothing wrong in that.
