of course Jim has no connection to Poland at all.
In part I feel I shouldn't comment - people living in glass houses and all that...
However, I must admit it's genuinely curious to me what JR is doing here if there isn't an actual connection to Poland.
His years of posting, probably make him more Polish than many PolAms, but that's not saying much. The answer has to do with the nature of PF itself, I think.
Sometimes I wonder, why there is not a Russian Forums, or Georgian Forums, or Ukrainian Forums that is like Polish Forums. You know, on a day when I'm bored with PF, and want to hop into another conversation with some English-speaking Romanians - for example - I realize then that there isn't really an equivalent.
It could be the unique coincidence of the forum's domicile and the specific views of its owner, which produced what we have now.
But as a person from the region, I think it's somewhat explainable what I'm doing here. If a person is not from Poland, or Europe, and has no family connection to Poland - it's rather odd why he would come daily to argue with people over whether or not Poles eat Caribbean-style hot herring over dumplings.
