If you do not live in the US...

Would you please consider putting that in your profile. Go to My Account / Edit User Details.

You don't need to tell everyone your address, just a country!

We keep having these weird conversations around here that would be pretty much non issues if it had been known that the poster is not writing from a typical US perspective! 95% of people are in the US so that is the default assumption.

What about a split personality? You are from the US but live out of the country, then you really will have a different perspective on some things

Well, I think that is kind of OP's point.

We can see that you live in the UK. So you may know more than someone who has never lived abroad, outside the US (like me!), and therefore, your perspective on something could be considered as someone having that knowledge. KWIM?
