A few take it too far and become disruptions and enjoy aggravating and insulting people. The more you see this showing up, the bigger the coward the troubled poster is in my experience which dates back a long time now. What they can never be in reality, they can pretend to be here in this anonymous make believe world. For being a total jerk, the worst that can happen is censorship or banning. Big deal.
I am, myself, not perfect and I've been duly censored or briefly banned. I haven't been banned for a long time. Maybe I am getting old? I accept the mods calls even when I might think they blew the call. I never harass or play silly games with them. This is not reality. This is make believe. Maybe a few folks on here actually meet or talk via the phone. Good for them. I'm not looking for that kind of connection. I have enough friends and despite being on here, I don't define my entire existence on Russian women or Russian anything.
I have built my online persona as VV and I enjoy that small part of my day...being on here as VV. I will say most folks on here seen like good people and we can agree to disagree like civil people. And, yes, sometimes it's cool to push the limits and get a bit risque or pass judgments on groups of people. One of our favorite targets is American women. I'm part of that choir but I never forget my mother was American as was my first wife who gave me a great son. We are still good friends which is rare and I feel blessed we remain on good terms.
If I'm honest, Russian women are far from perfect themselves and I have stated my views on that subject. There are clearly two special things about Russian women I have noted: A: They will accept an older husband...much older, and B. There are an unusual number of beautiful and available women to choose from versus America or Western Europe.
I've never kidded myself. I'm not going to have the relationship opportunities in the US that I had in Russia. My story may not end well but it was a hell of a ride. I regret nothing. What an adventure!
