It isn't just non-Virginians--by which I mean people who do not reside or are not from Virginia--who wouldn't like the definition. I think most Virginians would also think it's wrong.
Wait... is this some misguided attempt at solidarity after the attack on the Pentagon on 9/11? (which was in Virginia and not D.C., though it's often hard to tell since people shorthand it and say D.C., if they even think of anything other than the World Trade Center being attacked that day)... *thinking* Nope. It's just another freaky-wrong WeirdNET definition.
Edit: Curiously, WeirdNET vehemently (as in, three times) maintains that a Yankee is also a native or inhabitant of the United States--which it can be--at the same time it differentiates between southern and northern person. Which makes sense on that page, but I still can't figure out this one.
Well, a resident of Virginia is a native or inhabitant of the United States, right?
For that matter, a native or inhabitant of the United States is a native or inhabitant of a predominantly English-speaking country (for now, anyway). So Bilby, I'd guess that makes you a Virginian too!
This could really solve a lot of problems, you know?
