I'm sure they certainly do, but they don't apply that understanding in the vindictive way we do here in the States. I believe it stems from a stronger belief in redemption and forgiveness than you usually find here, as well as respect for others' privacy.

Of course I can't speak for what everyone believes because I have frequent contact with only a very few people overseas, but this is the general impression I get from the way they express these things.
