fairly laud group of people who get offended at any mention of Poland, which is not congruent with the way they see Poland.

I can feel offended that they can feel offended by this. This is ridiculous. Just as any other supposed offending of someone's feelings. Bollocks.

I ceased the irritation that is the 'peterweg' factor some time ago after one happy day when I found the Ignore button.

agreed. he is constantly in the struggle between reality and wishful thinking what puts him in the position to be completely unproductive in any kind of thread.

At least they're not exchanging romantic PMs with a 22 year old woman called Guess Who who turned out to be an old fat bloke.....

Aphrodisiac, since you've accussed me in this thread's O.P. of being a member of-

fairly laud group of people who get offended at any mention of Poland, which is not congruent with the way they see Poland.

Would you care to back up your claim with some textual evidence? I read lots of stuff on this forum that doesn't jibe with the way I see Poland but most of it doesn't offend me.

You can't still really believe that my pointing out the fact that the Inuit find the term "Eskimo" offensive in the following thread: Do Polish People like Eskimos?

polishforums.com/off-topic-lounge-47/polish-people-like-eskimos-58615

Is an example of being-

Polish solely instead of just being a human being.

The Inuit are not Polish and so I was right to write the following about your bizarre claim:

You would do better to wonder what lead you to come on to a Polish forum and make such a stupid assertion.

You then claimed that my pointing out the illogic of your claim was somehow making-

personal offensive remarks

When I then pointed out to you the fact that I had not denigrated your person, but rather your opinion, you then claimed-

yes, but calling another opinion stupid or idiotic makes you break the rules of this forums.

The moderators obviously disagreed with your interpretation of the forum's rules because the post you reported remains in the thread. Did your failure to have me disciplined in the exchange recounted above have anything to do with your creating this strange thread? I suspect that it did.

Hey, Aphro. He went on about this for about three pages before, and I wanted to cite it as an example of your topic, but here's an abridged version he so kindly provided presently:

Gee I wonder where the label "meathead" came from about Polish people in North America?

Is this the sorta knee-jerk jerkyness that inspired your thread?

I wonder if he knows that Archie Bunker was based on a British TV charactor called Alf Garnet....played by an East End Jew called Warren Mitchal;)

Would that make him fell better or worse I wonder eh ? ;)
"Till Death Us Do Part centred on the East End Garnett family, led by patriarch Alf Garnett (Warren Mitchell), a reactionary white working-class man who holds racist and anti-socialist views. His gentle and long-suffering wife Else was played by Dandy Nichols, and his daughter Rita by Una Stubbs. Rita's bright but layabout husband Mike Rawlins (Antony Booth) is a socialist. The character Alf Garnett became a well known character in British culture, and Mitchell played him on stage and television up until 1998, when Speight died."

PS, Anthony Booth, was Tony Blairs father in law........

why some people who are not even connected to Poland get so easily offended at any mention of Poland

To answer your question, this stems from the fact that Poland has been occupied by foreign powers for what...past 500 years? So Poles do not feel responsible for Poland's deficiencies. As an example in the States the Poles were one of the few ethnic groups that didn't blame the Polish upper classes for their condition as they felt that they weren't responsible because they weren't in power. Among other ethnic groups there was always friction between the lower and upper classes. This is why Poles do not feel responsible
