Morvinsietform, you pretty much, more or less, summed up my feelings about this forum and some people here. There's a bitter and agressive atmosphere on PF and people who stay here longer often get dragged into it. There are two camps fighting with each other and this seems to be the core of this forum nowadays. It got especially ugly lately with some members trying to get each other fired in real life jobs - can you believe it? It's psychotic, I've never seen anything like this on any internet forum.
Arguing is almost the national sport here in Poland. That struck me right at the start, 20 years ago and that view hasn't changed.
Jon357 blaming PF problems on Poland. Unbelievable.
I've never met in Poland people who would love to argue like you guys here. And in a very, very nasty way too.
I am myself tired of the atmosphere on PF, of those two gangs arguing with each other like children. I don't think this should be the core of a forum like this but it is. After pigsy was banned I decided to do sth good, sth useful for the forum and so I helped some people out with info and got involved in some normal-looking, interesting discussion in order to focus on sth normal and not on the bickering and the drama of PF but this forum somehow always puts me off in the end and I need to take brakes from it.
Of course, I don't have to be here, obviously, I've seen people here being told in the past that "if you can't take it than leave", that it's a "specific" forum for thick-skinned people, or sth of this sort. Well, and there you have it - rhinos trashing each other lol
As jon357 put it - each to their own I suppose...
Pity there's no other forum though... Maybe if women set up one it would be less aggressive? lol Dunno... :)
One very sad thing is that when someone from India/Pakistan etc posts a question about moving to Poland, meeting a partner etc
My impression is that those are usually trolls, or maybe rather one particular troll.
