This will probably end up in the off-topic as it's not about Poland, just PF members
fine with me, that is not the main issue where it will end up:), however that stance is also present in Poland therefore I put it in the .....oh, it is in OFF topic already, although I disagree that it should be here. This stance is common enough in Poland based on my observation.
Im offended by your obviously rabid anti Polish stance,call yourself Polish?
well, I was not speaking about myself being offended, but putting words in the mouth of the usual "offenders":).
The problem with your big discovery is that non of them lives in Poland.
I would not use such words, it is not a big discovery, but an observation.
Because of that, what you wrote here is simply not true:
sorry, but there are many people in Poland who have similar views. Unless I don't live in Poland.
You were subject of different socialization (or aculturalization)in Canada compared to typical Pole, being an immigrant in your heimat again.
er, not the case. The majority of Poles who never left Poland feel the same - I live here and I talk to people.
Plus you are germanophile and Polish.
wrong again Natasa.
That preference usually blurs or distorts one's perception. And it is kind of contradictio in adjecto when person is a Pole.
the rest of the post I don't understand. I can see that you are trying to look for reason for my posting, but perhaps you have something to add besides the personal remarks Natasa. Not cool.
I am fairly new to this forum but I do not see what is wrong with defending Poland's reputation against those who wish to denegrate it.
yes, it seems to me that you are fairly new and you are not really aware of the type of people I am talking about.
There is nevertheless something of a cultural cringe noticeable in Warsaw. A certain type of people only want to see, hear and say the very best, the reprezentacjny, rather than reality - to pretend that failings aren't there (or aren't their fault).
exactly my point Jonni.
