So, I was reading some headlines coming up in Google news, and came across this: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-45535715 Watching the video, I was surprised as I thought this was pretty universally identified as "OK" - which is how we use it as Divers. Having read up a bit about it, it seems that Internet memes and various alt-right activists have been deliberately been trying to subvert its meaning over the last couple of years. (Google search "OK sign white power" for pages of stuff on this, some of which is sensible and some utterly bonkers). The question is, should I start worrying about using the sign to mean OK, which I do out of habit, and is it really a problem? Is it different in the UK and US? I'm about as far from the alt right as it's possible to be, being an out-and-out liberal remainder. But even if I were a flag waiving brexiteer, I would rather not be associated with a bunch of American white supremacist scumbags for an innocently intended gesture. Some people obviously take it seriously, as it seems this guy in the coastguard (who I have know idea what he meant when flashing the sign) has been given the boot? Weird or worrying?
