[Points at the troll and waves]
We take globalization issues seriously. Unfortunately, we didn't have the time (or resources) to release a localized Channel 9. This is planned for our next release. I'm sorry if we offend anybody with American style numeric date formats. I agree that this is poor practice for something as global as Channel 9. We'll straighten this out.
Thanks for your feedback and please remember to be respectful of others. There is never a good reason to belittle somebody here. Let's be mindful that Channel 9 is a place for all cultures, even if for the first release we are American-centric from a localization/globalization point of view. Again, this will change.
Keep on posting,
