quick count of active users:
12 British
1 Irish
1 Spanish
2 Germans
2 Belgians
2 Dutch
1 Greek
1 Serb
1 Ukrainian
2 Russians
about 6 American/Canadian user with no Polish roots
about 14 American users of Polish descent (not sure of some users but they certainly are Americans)

1 half Greek half Polish
1 half Czech half Polish
8 Polish users who live in abroad
7 Polish users who live in Poland (including aphro) + 3 Polish user who I don't know where live.

to summarise:
45 non Polish to 20 Polish (including half Poles). No way that makes a majority.

I wasn't counting Havok and his wife.

Oh and I forgot about pawian. That makes 21 Poles :)

non Polish

I mean non-Polish born

So who is he???

Oh, my mistake than. There is also some new user TheHessian who presumably can be German.
I think I should also add something like 4-5 Poles I forgot about and few other foreigners... argghhh... it's pointless. We have to make some rules for that research first! ;)

Liar and s1ck woman. Read somewhere that you call me also russian. Maybe your delusional brain should decide? The advise still stands to get you psy help.

I am German and hessian too. Don't listen to s1ck Amanda, but at the end it's up to you what do with the info. :)

because you sound like one but then again, there's no big difference between the Serbs and the Russians, both commies.

Majority of that forum was Americans of Polish descent, Poles living in the USA or Canada

Marysiu, most of us can easily tell who is Polish on PF.

Polish culture and the mentality are very homogeneous in comparison to Western Europe, partially because Poland was isolated for such a long time from the rest of the world. I also feel it's important to mention how overall little positive impact as a country we had on any other culture in the past 300 years. Most people abroad classify us as an insignificant former Eastern-Bloc country, and on a personal level confuse us with Russians or sometimes Germans.

Of course some of us may passionately argue that I'm "just full of it" and I'm wrong but ironically that's one of those dead giveaways for me about Polish posters.

For a long time Polish people were conditioned to resist assimilation, but in today's reality this mindset is highly problematic and it impairs the natural progress of many individuals living in Poland and Polish living abroad as well. Most Polish have a very hard time of letting it go and adjusting to new socioeconomic realities of today's world.

Paranoia, "Polish Church mentality", apprehensive mindset, unsubstantiated self-conscious approach to the "Polish self-image" are very common traits which are deeply embedded in Polish society like a cancer, that keeps on eating you from the inside out.

for starters, if you want to be successful try mimicking more successful people. (whatever your definition of success is)

My personal definition of success is a happy marriage, pretty wife that I can trust, secure financial well being, independence, comfortable lifestyle, and the ability to travel almost anywhere and anytime I wish. To make this happen it was necessary for me to make several mental leaps, but one thing is certain, I would not be able to get where i am with my Polish mindset. Do I regret changing? Nope. Adaptation is a sign of true intelligence.

Keep on standing still if you want and pretend whatever, I could care less.

Aha. As I understand you, happy marriage, pretty wife you could trust, secure financial wellbeing, independence, and the ability to travel almost anywhere and anytime you wish is not possible for Poland's Poles?

Funny thing, I've probably been to bigger part of the world than you ever been, enjoy the same as you, and still am Poland's Pole.

Could you elaborate on why it is impossible to achieve what you have achieved for Poles living in Poland?

You're missing my point but ok. Care to share how you've accomplished that?

Also why there are so many poor Polish living in Poland and abroad?

Ohh fcuk right off, you must be intelligent then.. is that the point?

I gave you answers, but they don't sit well with a lot of people.

No... that's not what i meant. lol

but how are you adopting to life in Poland? Can you speak Polish yet?

They wouldnt would they, nothing worse than an expat trying to preach to the old country, they dont live in, they dont know or conveniently forgot.

No... that's not what i meant. lol

Ive breezed through the thread and its content, it has one sole purpose and thats to make Havok look friggen great, whether you meant that or not thats what i see. Your success is measured on the amount of time youve spent out of Poland and everything associated. You are essentially a well brainwashed expat, playing the monetary game. I observe your posts have also carried a negative aspect regarding your home country and Poles in general, its almost as though you consider yourself some superior being based on the fact that you have more money.

First of all, graduating as Master of Science from a technical university and taking care to learn English.
Then, hard work and constant developing skills.
It does not matter what country you live -- except oppressive regimes -- to achieve success.
One more point: I have been to so many countries, still on each return to Poland I am inclined to kiss the home soil.

Also why there are so many poor Polish living in Poland and abroad?

I think poverty is not limited to Poles. If you think otherwise, everybody except Poles should be rich in the United States.
Do you have some statistical facts to prove your statement?

ohh i didnt see it the first time, thats the turn around right there, hes saying "ive succeeded in the USA how are you getting on in Poland". What do you expect me to reply with? a list of my businesses, investments and general achievements as you have?

I dont do that....anymore.

I know you can't read Polish because if you could, (now I'm taking into account your compulsive nature of going through my posts), you would realize that I did NOT forget who I was. All I'm trying to say is that it's ok to change and adopt positive things from other cultures that can potentially enrich you. Also I'm asking people to stop being racist and xenophobic and to keep an open mind.

The problem with most Polacks is, (including you now), that they portray this all as a form of treason, and jealously attack it from all possible angles, yet on daily basis they whine about their misery, write in English on PF, watch Hollywood movies and dream of getting out of that sinkhole.

You're a selective reader and you tend to draw conclusions which are biased and quote them in order to prove your point.

I've been reading some of your posts as well and I've realized that you're unhappy and pissed off about being stuck in Poland which makes your statements kinda funny. lol

Sorry Havok, any complex-ridden person can't be a mentor for me...

huh? WTF are you talking about?

If im not mistaken the message contained within the above is basically this:

I can and i dont go through your posts, if i want info i just run a search, its simple - hell youre the IT guy you should know that.

Youre preaching.

I dont think so, youve been out of country for so long now you can only surmise based on what you read here.

You're a selective reader and you tend to draw conclusions which are biased and quote them in order to prove your point.

I dont think so, i would estimate that i read approx 20% of your posts and its so evident of how brainwashed you are.

What ya gonna do create another thread about me: Just an FYI Wroclaw Boy is a stalker

Fcuking puzzy, at least youre fighting your own battles for a change.

Everyone: go fuck yourself you traitor!!!!

Wroclaw boy: yeah! you tell him!

That doesn't make much sense. Can you explain, what is your point?

unfortunately i cant explain, you'll just have to figure that one out for yourself, I'll say this though you remind me of myself a few years ago. Take what you will from that....

I don't question your ability to search. I can't figure out why you would even bother to do so. Why spend a minute of your life on searching for my useless posts?

Youre preaching.

I'm just stating the obvious man.

I dont think so, youve been out of country for so long now you can only surmise based on what you read here.

I beg to differ mate. This site is full of delirious people and it's not a good source of viable information about Poland. This site is about people writing about what they think, me laughing and then crying about how stupid some of them are.

I think poverty is not limited to Poles.

you're right, it's not. What I’m trying to say is that the poverty of Poles defies logic. I’ve expressed some of that resentment in my drunken thread about Upper Silesia.

First of all, graduating as Master of Science from a technical university and taking care to learn English.
Then, hard work and constant developing skills.

Good for you. I'm happy and proud you got it right.
