I've looked for a thread where I could introduce myself, but since I couldn't find one I'll do it here - hello to all, my name is Michael and I'm from Poland :)

You are not special at all. You are the 5th registered Michael from Poland ;)

Welcome.

Aren't all the Orthodox Poles named "Michał"?  By the way, does crossing out the 'L' make it silent?    ;)

Welcome.

There's a seed of uniqueness in this - I'm the only one 5th registered Michael from Poland ;)

It's the symbol of uncertainty  ;)

Thank all of you for all the "hello's", both that written and possibly yet unwritten!

Hey people, don't know if anyone will read this, but nevertheless I'll post it here.

I've decided to stop posting on the forum, at least for some time. This is due to something a friend of mine once told me and I've forgot about it - never chat on two things, politics and religion, and never do it on internet forum.

I've realized that whenever it comes to a debate over one of these I take the things too emotional. I don't want anyone to think that Poles are small-minded hate breeders, as much as I wouldn't want to read about totalitarian Poland. I know we often do not weigh our words, and the internet is a perfect place to forget about it. And I know myself, how easily I can be provoked, and forget myself. This I would not want to happen, even if only because I am representing my country and every word I write is either positively thick or negatively weak brick in the monument of it's opinion.

The second thing is that faith is a matter to be experienced, not talked about. The more I write about it, the more "dissected" I feel. It's not the crisis of faith :), just a feeling of exposed privacy that I still search of.

This is not to say I feel angry, sad or something, that's absolutely not the case. It's just the way I should go, at least for the time being. Thank all of you for those few days, it was nice to meet you.

Stay well,
Michał

Hi again, I've cooled down (funny how fast it takes in both sides) and decided to return, although I will be more passive on everything :). As Yoda would say - very strange day, that yesterday was. No need to run. Sorry.

Welcome back!   But note that you've used up your two "welcomes" now, so I can't welcome you again in the future  ;D :p

Just a hidden need of being a troll exposed, has to happen at least once, I guess ;)
