Plenty

Iron, Torq whoever ya are.

I've nothing but respect for my new home. And the opinion of some keyboard warrior too cowardly to even register properly on a website means about as much to me as a snot's opinion.

Have a great day!

cloaks itself in self-righteousness.

intelligent and very wise when in fact you are very mediocre at best. You hate the fact it has been exposed.

I don't know about hating it or it having been exposed but I do know there is a long list of geniuses like you that continuously get banned only to come back under a different name to "get revenge" by naming those who have made you feel small and pathetic without having any arguments so you fall back on some words that are so totally open to interpretation that it is just meaningless dribble.

Wtf have I got to do with this?
You can leave me out of your BS and go back to your gimpy private forum and be with your own sort.

Aliens never abduct those who want to be abducted otherwise it wouldn't be abduction ;p

He want's you but doesn't want me, so which pathetic loser did you put a mirror to? or is the list too long?

Why's everyone beating up on Torq? he was a good guy.

Toro what traditions/culture in your view are not being respected? Would be good to know and understand as I may be moving there?

Check definitions of traditions or culture and proceed from there. Remember that even if there are difference in opinion about something you shouldn't take sides as you being foreigner don't fully understand what it all about. That would make your choices ill informed. Just be respectful and not judgmental and will be fine. I think that you are only poster that posted on topic. Respect.

've nothing but respect for my new home.

Yes keep lying.

So you think but don't worry I ain't gonna post no more.

But after all, Serbs don`t feel like foreigners in Poland.

Poles do think you are foreigners, big time; Or maybe I have the wrong kind of Polish friends? The ones who watch TVN24, Polsat News...the ones who read GW...the ones who think Rydzyk is a crooked businessman disguised as a priest...in short the majority here in Warsaw?

My colleagues at work do not associate Serbia with Europe.

I know what the definition is but that still doesn't explain what you are meaning?

Remember that even if there are difference in opinion about something you shouldn't take sides as you being foreigner don't fully understand what it all about. That would make your choices ill informed.

I disagree I still have a viewpoint and if I feel I want to air that viewpoint I would. If someone expects me to respect their viewpoint then surely they should also respect mine? With specifics though it difficult to understand what you are trying to say. For instance I remember reading sometime ago about a teacher asking pupils to lick cream of his knees because it was tradition, am I supposed to not say anything and allow my child to do that?

Your memory is faulty; it was actually a priest who was demanding that children lick cream off his knees (and it wasn't cream but actually shaving foam).

Reflect on it and understand that not everyone from serbia shares your views or outlook.

yes, i admit. We Serbians are very stubborn people. We Serbs can`t agree which male is more dominant so we let the females dominate. God knows, i am great servant

among my posts (in particular thread) you can found videos/voice of Polish Radio Maryja. So, tell me, what`s your point?

That radio station isn't representative of anything either.
Crow 146 | 9,152
17 Sep 2013 #45
and whom you represent to be competent to judge about it?

In my opinion, that radio is popular in some layers of the Poland`s society and i respect it.

Actually living there for decades does give one a certain insight - more so than a fantasist sitting somewhere the other end of Europe. Your opinion is misplaced if you think that radio station is influential to all except the senile.

Why foreigners in Poland do not respect Polish culture and traditions

Sir, can I ask you some questions, I guess I can!
Sir, Can you tell me why many Polish people themselves, don't follow Polish culture and traditions?
Second question Sir, could you please tell me if in developing country (Germany, France, Switzerland, UK and America) where someone is forced to adopt other cultures other than what they follow/ believe?

One more Sir Tor, could you please tell me why Polish people complain about Poland; their motherland and they are the first to leave their country given the chance?

One last Honorable Tor, did you know that new Polish geneneration is actually not following Polish culture but instead keen on learning and practising other cultures?

I think you are just a silly communist who is still living in the 18th century!!

Maybe foreigners in Poland are just arrogant knobs with no respect for anything but fist.

Talking about kn*bs, yeah we do have bigger one ofc! But Sir again, if you don't like foreigners, so why are you surrounded by millions of things which is manufactured abroad by foreign people in foreign land and with foreign materials? I bet you would be the first person to get VISA to North Korea! :)

no offence to anyone, this post is strictly pointed to our Honorable, 18th century noble man, Sir Tor..!!

Wake up!!!!

ok, don`t listen then. That radio station is just one of many radios in Poland. Some Poles for sure listening some other radio, some don`t listen radio at all.

And very true in the case of that one. It isn't tradition, and it isn't culture.

It is well-documented that most foreigners, or immigrants for that matter, are always more susceptible to the host culture than vice versa. Actually, you'll find loads of research on this exact topic. On the contrary, it could be that a perceived hostility and aggression towards immigrants may develop into inwardness in the newcomers.

That video is a complete load of tripe, Chinese do not speak English with that kind of accent.
That video has been dubbed over.

She cannot even pronounce her own name properly, what a scam.

Who doesn't she take her glasses off?

Few thoughts

- American opinions don't matter because most don't respect much of anything Non-American

- Poland doesn't have the rich or historical history as Western Europe. Few reasons for that. Firstly it was much easier to fend off outside attackers positioned in the West and Poland did not colonize or enslave. So today we aren't as respected or as wealthy but we aren't over run by 3rd World immigrants either.

you should change the source of your information, so you won't sound so ignorant.

Name me any nation and I'll provide you with the negative stereotype most Americans use to downplay their significance or success

Most Americans ignore the fact that the overwhelming portion of their success is based on foreign minds & backs. Instead they think if they were around throughout history they would have even more international influence than today. Truth is with all the resources, intelligent/drive/hard working immigrants, cheap labor AND two huge bodies of water protecting their butts.....American dominance lasted from 1950 to 2000. It's quite embarrassing to be honest.

Again, your source of information is biased, or you hang around really stupid people. Most Americans are well aware of foreigners' contributions. They are also fiercely proud of their origins, (well, maybe not all Poles), and they covet European design, Asian food, Spanish dance, etc, etc..

The only thing they're sure they are best at, is making war. And there, they're right.
