I agree with you, it is probably not intentional. However, I see it as a
problem. I dit write to the user.

The way I see it is the following.
Many Africans don't know how westerners like to eat their spaghettis. For
most Westerners, rolling them around the fork is part of the fun, while
most Africans overcook the pastas and cut them short. I was served a lot of
spaghettis cut in small pieces by my host in Africa.  It's not a big deal
and always good intentioned but it would certainly start to be problematic
if a person with the same good intentions would go to the supermarket and
start breaking all the spaghettis "because they should be no more than 3cm
long". I think that we are typically dealing with something of that nature.
It might be well intentioned but it is an issue.
