Vishram,

In the USA, the symbols @#$%^&* and such all run closely together as you
did would be used to denote expletives.  I don't know about other
countries, perhaps it is the same elsewhere.

Basically, you just told the Americans on the list that you have no regard
for them and wish them a terrible year.

I know that isn't what you mean - no harm done.

Andy was not attacking Vishram; he was merely trying to prevent Vishram
from potentially embarassing himself in future.  A couple of related
examples:

[1] A foreign student at my college had been given a windbreaker with a
   cartoon figure of a cat and the words (in large letters): "MAX: The
   best little cat-house in Nevada".  She strutted this gift proudly
   until someone discretely informed her that a "cat-house" was not a
   feline residence (for those unfamiliar with the term, it refers to a
   house of prostitution which is legal in Nevada).

[2] Heard second-hand, but related: A person was trying to hitchhike in a
   foreign country (Egypt I think) using the American "thumb's up" ges-
   ture.  The person got honked at, but nobody offered a lift until fin-
   ally a polite motorist stopped and said "You're an American, aren't you.
   Around here, the hitch-hiking signal is [waving palms down].  The ges-
   ture you were using means 'f___ you'.  I'm not surprised motorists didn't
   take kindly to that."
