I think instead you may be misreading.
It's not hostility by US members to the idea of a European BPX. It's just that some of us APUG members* really do enjoy interacting with members from other countries, and would like to continue with that current BPX format.
If you honestly feel that your interests would be better served by withdrawing from the APUG international BPX exchange and forming a brand new one that caters only to those with interests more similar to your own, I would encourage you to do so.
No one is trying to mislead you anywhere.
