American understanding of Britain.

The forum is basically an 'American' forum now, not even Polish-American. Most threads are spammed with stuff about Trump, Obama, Hilary Clinton, the Democrats, Mexicans, Blacks, Jews, guns etc. BORING.............for Europeans. American domestic politics are of zero interest to most of us. The other obsession is with Muslims and immigration and white supremacy. It's become a personal club for a handful of strange people to have a go at each other for their own weird amusement and for certain people to register as a few characters and then argue with themselves - wall to wall nutters. But, a few posters who have something of value to say or a sense of humour, make the place bearable.

It's funny though that it's a few members who actually give a toss about the state of the forum and try to keep it going in some kind of normal format whilst the Admin whose forum it actually is, doesn't care at all! He's like a teacher of an unruly class who's given up trying to manage them. NEVER give up! I still say that the only way to save the forum is with a Christmas concert. It always worked for me, get the children singing and it sweetens them up :))

@Jon357

I liked your restaurant story.
There certainly are differences between some Brits and Yanks.
In general Yanks are much more open and friendly when first meeting people whilst we Brits tend to be more reserved but in social circles and especially after a few drinks,Brits tend to open up and often shock some Yanks with what they say............

@Atch

Lol!!!! :-)

It always has been love, right out of Chicago for and about Poland and the Polish people.
The Brits took over from the git go with their arrogance but we have taken it back.

try to keep it going in some kind of normal format whilst the Admin whose forum it actually is, doesn't care at all!

I know I told him that once when the brit's took over and he told me if I didn't like it not to post here anymore. :-o

Besides he is not a CONTROL FREAK that treats everyone inferior like five year old children demanding to be in charge of them to Control them to his liking.

Like not everyone is your cup of tea.

get the children singing and it sweetens them up :))

Oh goody gum drop, we could sing about baking pies and how to discipline a five year old with adult whit.
How stuffy.

It's actually only two or three people behind it. The way that one of them spends every minute of every waking day on here, obsessing over posts made years ago and getting hysterical every time he gets banned for a couple of days - well, say no more. Either way, no wonder this forum has such a bad reputation in Poland.

Actually there are six of us.
The same number the Brit Bullis use to have.

The way that one of them spends every minute of every waking day on here,

You mean the guy with over 16,000 posts ?

posts made years ago

They kind of keep a person honest don't they. lol

Many years ago,I used to post to a Usenet group called Soc.Culture.Polish,which was a Usenet group,similar to this forum.
But most of you on here are to young to remember that.
Posters on there,like here,had strong Polish connections,but back then there were no ex pats living in Poland,
So they were all Poles in Poland or Poles who had left.A lot of them were Polish Jews.
But,just as now,the Polish Americans were the weird ones who messed it all up and SCP is unheard or today.
History repeats itself... you Polish Americans need to understand that there are other opinions out there and that you should respect them.
My fear is that you are already messing this forum up and it will go the same way as SCP.

I think we should tell all.

Many years ago

Those many years ago are all recorded and filed.
Remember this one.
We should understand that it is a mental disorder which is no fault of his own so we shouldn't poke fun about it.

I remember the days of Chat, when a poster would frequently post things like "hahahaha delphiandomine you are mentally ill hahahahaha".

History does repeat itself Miloslaw........case in point.

At least the Brits pay up, cant complain about them in this respect.

You really have no clue. The U.K. (and other countries) included pensions to get to their military spending of 2% GDP.

You really dont seem to realize how hypocritical it is when you have more posts than anyone else on this forum with over a whopping 16K posts. WoW!!

Europeans. American domestic politics are of zero interest to most of us

Really? Here is one example taken from thousands of posts from a fanatical European poster fixated about our politics.

https://polanda.com/off-topic/support-president-trump-fight-media-freedom-usa-83065/3/

Post #66 and #67 is a prime example of when the peanut gallery starts meddling in our politics again.

Its a never end story on here Ms. Atch, you could have fooled me! LOL

more posts than anyone else on this forum

More posts perhaps than people who change their username more often than Macierewicz changes his knickers.

I was wondering if your posts were off-topic. And decided no, they illustrate certain cognitive dissonances related to the subject beautifully.

Can someone explain to me why Americans seem to be obsessed with "recording and filing" things? Is it to compensate for the lack of their own history and complete lack of culture?

What culture are we lacking? Do you mean like in the United Kalifate having their biggest city taken over thru invasion? Good bye to the British culture as you know it, and it only took 20 years! lol

What about Paris? That place need an anemia and stinks like the worlds biggest sewer, full of Muslims. Wheres their culture now? Its lost!

Lets not forget Germany the defacto capitol of the middle east

Nice job Europe!! You really need a guy like Trump!

America doesn't have any culture at all. It's a rancid cesspit of humanity, where white trash living on trailer parks like to fantasise about ruling the world, when in reality, they spend their days stuffing their faces with canned cheese and chlorinated chicken.

The reality is that European culture is far superior to anything America has to offer. Americans come in their millions to the UK to learn what culture and history really means, because they certainly don't have it in their grid cities and trailer parks.

Lol a scathing criticism of the US. It is true that compared to uk and most of eu they have no culture but geez it does exist. Usa has many cultural values, a diverse range but it looks like a void from the outside because it doesnt apply to everything and everyone. I hate to suggest anything to anyone here because most of you have what appears to be anger problems but i would just say....look beyond the trailer parks for a minute.

what appears to be anger problems

No doubt unstable and immature.
I think maybe because all the country Scotland has is a Trump golf course and the kids in the U.S. make more money at a starting wage at McDonalds then he does teaching in Poland......if he is teaching that is.

Huge inferiority complex knowing that he couldn't even afford to live in a trailer park if he lived in the U.S.A.
So that is why he criticizes the Polish and Americans to make himself look like someone that he is not.
He claims that he started a school in Poland, he claims that he worked for the Polish government, he claimed to come to Poland originally to recruit homosexuals, he claims to be a school teacher yet his name does not show up on any of the faculty lists of any schools in Poland, he claims all these things yet none of it can be substantiated.

So how is an American suppose to understand Britain's culture when a half baked Brit smells like he does..

The thing about America is that they spend a huge amount of money embracing British culture because they simply have none of their own. Look at their museums, they're all third rate copies of what you can find in Europe. No-one goes to America for art, music or history, because they simply have none of their own. That's why they project constant non-stop inferiority towards the UK, because they're simply bitter and jealous.

We have more art museums then the U.K.
We started rhythm & blues and rock & roll
We are a country only 200 years old and have more history in that 200 years then the U.K.
That's why they project constant non-stop inferiority towards America, because they're simply bitter and jealous.

American art? Don't make me laugh. Whoever heard of American art?
Music? Please, that was all ripped off from European music. Anyone with basic music knowledge knows that

The proof is in the millions of Americans that visit British cultural institutions yearly, because they have nothing of their own. They come to Europe to appreciate good food, culture, music and art, after all.

I guess you don't have basic knowledge then because Rhythm & Blues and Rock & Roll originated in the U.S.

More tourist from around the world visit the U.S. then the U.K.

Obviously not you.

Obviously not anyone. That's why art galleries in the UK are filled with American tourists finally learning what real art is. I mean, one of the most famous American artists was a Slovak, LOL!

I just got a P.M. from one of my British friends and they said that you are an embarrassment as an ex-pat U.K.er to Poland.

I P.M.'d them back and said that I concur.

Sorry to say but since trump people of all kinds of nationalities ridicule the usa, i hear it all the time but usually make no comment as i think as mentioned before trump is necessary as a catalyst for change. It's got to the point though where it mimics the bitter fight in the usa between the two parties so anything is fair game as long as it craps on something.

A jealous non-apologetic Serbian who wishes that one day his bombed out nationalist hell-hole of a country would qualify for EEC grants from benefactors such as the UK.

Except that it never will..

I think you are basically right here. The US is nit only a different country, it is also a different continent! The Americans seem in a way to be aliens to us, Europeans. Do you perhaps remember ALF (Alien Life Form) from a TV sitcom?

The other obsession is with Muslims and immigration and white supremacy.

I usually skip messages posted by certain posters, particularly if their posts are long.

the Admin whose forum it actually is, doesn't care at all!
