Can you actually demonstrate this?
AFAICS, `USian' is a mildly pejorative[*] term used mainly by
usenet/slashdot types, and is essentially never used in the `real world'.
[*] Given the butt-head way the U.S. has been acting the last few years, I
can understand the desire to rebuke, but `USian' is quite awkward and
tends to be misleading, as it's often accompanied by silly screeds
about how the term American is "wrong", etc. -- if you want to rebuke,
a term like "Amerikan" [often used the same sorts of people that like
"USian"], while equally ugly, at least sticks to being purely
