Why are people who can't be bothered to register allowed to post or start new threads?

I could not agree more with that.

I would guess there are teachers doing very well in Warsaw, but there are bound to be others not doing so well as expected

This much is true.

I'm thinking about the ones who come on here, with a 4 week course behind them, asking about extra work and charging low fees. Don't you think when their money runs out, they would be desperate enough to to do any job to stop themselves from starving?

I worked in ELT (mostly in management though I did always also do lessons) for 10 years and never came across anyone washing cars etc. Even the scummiest nomarks (I chose those words carefully) can usually get enough work to survive and in any case there's too much competition amongst unemployed locals for a foreign teacher to pick up work in a car wash.

Warsaw is a big city, do you really know everyone who calls themselves an English teacher there?

The troll who started the thread seems to know about "most" of them:

Oh is it true that most English teachers now wash cars to substitute there income?

Vincent, to work in a car wash, one would need to speak fairly decent Polish. A native speaker of English who speaks decent Polish will easily get a job that pays more than minimum wage.

Wulkan, yes, Warsaw Poland, where car washing is a minimum wage job.

Does Warsaw actually even have car washes anymore?

I don;t know of any around Kato or it's adjoining cities. All of them are self-service things now where you wash the car yourself with a power washer.

destroyed by a handful of determined (mainly racist) trolls?

Agreed. How many more "Polish men are X" & "I am from [Non-European nation] and I have/want a Polish girl" threads do we need

Merged: Members Posting as Guest-What's the Story?

My husband had to re-install Windows today so I wasn't logged in when he switched the computer back on. Tried to make a quick post as a guest and received a message that due to the 'trollish' and spam like nature of my posts (??????) I couldn't post as a guest and something....blah, blah, I would be 'banned anyway'. What?????????? So I'm in the same category as Ktos and a few other choice individuals. Thanks very much. Anyone care to explain? Thank you. 'blah, blah' - this part you missed, it explained the exact reason (it's not about you but the your ISP's IP).

By the way the post was about Pax furniture in Ikea, really controversial.........

Why should people register to start threads ? It's inconvenient. What's the benefit for me, as a user ? - your first question is void, doesn't apply to this site. The other two sentences are based on the false assumption.

Ok. Could you just clarify, is that because IPs can be very broad, rather than individual. For example if somebody living in my part of Warsaw had made trollish type posts then my IP could be affected? (yes ) As neither my husband nor myself go trolling around the internet or abusing people online I can't see why trolling or spam could be associated with our IP. Thanks.

Thank you for the response. Could you explain the following:

Yesterday I visited the forum briefly during the afternoon and saw a new discussion had been started by member Ktos. 'Oh God', thought I, 'what's he banging on about now?'. When I clicked on the post, I received a message telling me that the discussion had been moved/merged as it didn't comply with rules etc and was advised to read the rules about starting threads?? Does this mean that for some weird reason your system thinks I'm Ktos? It's interesting that somebody sent InPolska an email supposedly from Ktos (but it wasn't) and now I seem to be mistaken for him. Extra weird as he apparently lives in Australia...........

No, this is exactly the same message that I get when a thread has been moved or merged.

? It's interesting that somebody sent InPolska an email supposedly from Ktos (but it wasn't) and now I seem to be mistaken for him.

If you read the thread about the alleged email again, Ktos was not accused of sending an email by the OP.

I beg your pardon, my mistake. I was confusing him with Szczur.
