Do the Moderators have a rule book or is it Knee jerk Policy?

In my experiences, mud slingers usually end up in the mud themselves at some point.

I have a candidate. Pure mud slinging and no reaction from mods.

No, surely not only Poles, but they are overwhelmingly highly represented as a nation of beggers.

Because of people like them and your kind of mentality Poland is a failed state

And Poles steal stuff

What do you think about Polish hitchhikers?

Some quicker than others.

Some much, much more slowly, it seems.

Merged: Don't mind me, just suspend me without warning, for questioning the practices of the Mods.

It's good to have a break, stretch the legs. And! I learned something, which is always a plus. You can denigrate other members, you can denigrate entire cultures even, but don't --not for a pico-second-- don't EVER question a Mod's practices. Other forums, the kind not owned by webmasters in Illinois, they tend to give a little more respect to their members. They'll tell you what you did wrong, warn you, give you a chance to make it right. PF? Nah, this is just a car parking lot for people to argue in, and maybe look at some of the ads on their way through. So, thanks, Mods. I'm glad to know who's who on the totem pole, here. At the top: You know who. Under that: Mods. Under that: More Mods. Under THAT: The other two mods. And under all that, who is the greasy soil holding up that totem pole? Us, the worthless members.

If your memory served you as well as your penchant for ruling by fiat, you'd know that isn't true.
And you AGAIN flushed my feel-good pic of the Jewish athletes, without so much as the ceremony they were pictured participating in. C'mon, Wro.

all the posts are still in random. you are free to double check. then you can check your threads where you will find your sport topic.

next time a mod replaces a topic for you it might be better if you didn't lose your temper and paid attention

the topic was reposted according to the time it was originally posted and therefore showed up on page two.

all this was done while you were complaining.

Then cut my complaints or issue a warning! I wasn't whining because my thread was meddled with, I was whining because it was meddled with ostensibly for things that other threads go into their 9th page for. A little slack, man. That's all I'm askin'.

Merged: Sick of the rules! We Polish don't like so many rules on the forum!

Don't do this, don't do that, can't write this because it offends one, can't write that because it may offend one, my God, what happened to open Polish discussion? We are entering western zone where during conversation everyone is tense and scared to say anything and if someone says something "inappropriate" it is seen as so controversial that big consternation evolves. Most of my threads have disappeared because of this new "law" and this is suppose to be a Polish forum, yeah I can see that. On Polish forum we should be allowed to post anything as long as it does not come across as vulgar or derogatory.

Where is your Polish? Oh you can't speak Polish so you can only come to a forum where people from other nations will speak English for you, hopeless. And again off topic response, isn't it against the English rules of this forum to post off topic comments?

ktos you seem to be having comprehension problems as well as some kind of mental breakdown.
It clearly states that the language of this forum is English. If you don't like that, hey don't let the door bang on your way out.

Ktoś appears to be the CEO, COO and sole shareholder of that well-known cyber firm Mudslingers Anonymous:-)

If his brain could comprehend at times what his fingers are posting, he'd probably short-circuit himself!

A very fair assessment indeed, Lyzko:

Chopin was Polish.

Ktosiu,

Pan Frederyk Szopen was half-FRENCH, perhaps the reason why, as you so crudely put it, he never dedicated any of his compositions to the land of his mother's birth, indeed his "MATczyzna"LOL

He lived in Paris, even longer than in Zelazowa Wola, furthermore, began one of European history's most torrid love affairs with the tres francaise Mme. Georges Sand, the love of his all too brief life!

If you bother to listen in depth to nearly every strain of Szopen's aka Chopin's breathtakingly beautiful etudes, polonaises and Impromptus, you hear a "dedication" to Poland in each heartwrenching bar of his music; the melancholy mingling with the mirthful one minute, the vaingloriously proud, triumphant the next.

Listen from now on, Ktoś, with your ears and less with your pride:-)

In fact a large part of his corpus relates to Poland - just very odd that Ktos didn't pick up on that.

This is going off topic though..

About the 'rule book' vs. 'knee-jerk' thing, of course there are rules; even if sometimes arbitrarily applied. I imagine the moderators have to sift through everything in a short time (and of course do it for free) so doubtless it's a delicate call to make about whether a post has broken the rules and should go or has broken the rules and should stay for whatever reason.

We may not always agree with their decisions (I sometimes don't) but we should cut them a bit of slack.

Ktos would do well to read the forum rules carefully, especially the stuff about starting new threads.

Szopen had French background (half of it) but he was Polish! Not a pride thing, I personally do not like him for not dedicating his music to Poland. Maybe I am exaggerating but someone who made so many compositions and who at the time of Romanticism does not dedicate the biggest gift he has to his country is off putting to me. That does not mean he was not Polish. It does not matter where he lived or who he dated, he was Polish for he cultivated Polish culture and visited Poland on regular basis which in those times was risky and hard to do. So do not judge if you haven't learned history of the times, read more books and do not tell Polish people fairy tales, stretching the truth is a lie.

Does Pani Manya Skłodowska cease in your eyes to be "Polish" because she married her non-Polish husband Pierre and became forever known to the world at large as "Madame Curie"???

Under the law of the time, she did; same with Chopin's mother.

Her native tongue was Polish, so was Chopin's!

The issue here is that even if a Pole, German etc. wanders from their native land, they don't stop being Polish or German!
If they are FROM a country, despite the national origin of one or even both parents, they remain native to the land of their birth.

The spirit that exudes from Chopin is Polish, NOT French:-)
