Axe to grind, Harry?
None at all. It's just that people need to be aware that in publications where advertisers pay all the bills advertisers have a very big say in what is and is not said in the publication. A great example would be Namaste curry house in Warsaw: it's widely regarded as one of the best in Poland but for years (after the owner of it and the boss of IYP Poland had a disagreement about advertising) the place wasn't even mentioned in InYourPocket. Another example would be Tandoor Palace: it was widely regarded for years as the worst curry in Warsaw but a nice large advert made sure that the review it got was brilliant.
Is there an English language publication in Poland that hasn't turned down your poor writing/sacked you?
No English language publication in Poland which I have ever offered work to turned me down and the only times I have stopped working for publications are either when the publication closed or hadn't paid me for more than three months without agreement to delay payment.
