in itself) was the last straw for me. I'm not going to stay on a forum which allows
obvious trolling (moreover - the trolling gets support from a moderator.)
This is my penultimate post here.
Sometimes the truth hurts, but it is the truth. Having said that there are some great Polish people out there, who invite you into their lives, you break through that barrier which seemely takes years to break. I managed that, maybe because of personality or trust, to the point that they could tell my anything. I class this as a personal achievement, I still have my Polish friends after 10 years. It just takes a long long time for Polish people to really trust a foreigner, this cannot be done on just a visit to Poland. You have to look at the bigger picture.
Torq, you of all people should know this it takes alot of time for the Polish to trust a foreigner, and even then they have to be special to you.
I have Polish friends in Krakow that I could turn up tomorrrow, unexpectedly and it would be party time. The original poster is correct is her observations it is true, but long term it is completely different.
