It's rare that a troll is so open about his or her intentions.

Your honesty is refreshing!
Well darling, it is not surprising : I am not a troll at all!!! I just wanted to give you all a taste of your of medicine.

I stand by my more serious comments though. I think JohltaVontra (Night fever, night feveeeerrr) has valid points.

And every non-swiss has this cheesy purple book.
Wrong. Neither I nor any of my family have ever had a purple book in the six years we've lived here and we are not Swiss.

I have never been called an Auslander either.

As most here are foreigners (why do you use the German word?) and can edit their posts without problem, this is clearly nonsense.

Well, even you need to be fair to the guy. He has been pretty upfront about his intentions/opinions. Surely he is not going to pretend that he cannot edit his posts. I, for one, believe him.

If an auslander is a racist word, then switzerland is officially racist.
It's not a racist word, it's German for 'foreigner'.

Also, if you don't like it, why do you use it, or don't you speak English?

Here's a basic language lesson for you:

English: foreigner

German: Auslander

French: etranger

Italian: straniero

You don't spend much time on the internet, do you?

I've been about as fair as I think I am capable of being. The OP is not honest, not even to himself. What he is, is angry and full of spleen. I'll add insulting and rude. (If you wish I'll cite specific examples.)

"Upfront" and "Honest" do not mean a carte blanche right to post any and all rubbish without objection. There may be some substance to his claims... with all due respect I'm not surprised that he isn't well received. If his facial expressions are only in small part reflective of the hate that he writes (not just writes of, but also propagates) then I'm not in the least surprised that he isn't welcomed warmly.

Sometimes I wonder why the rest of the world see Russians as a bunch of a-holes.

I like Russians. All the ones I've met have a sort of "don't give a shit" attitude, which is kind of cool. Then there are the ones on youtube who are all mental as fcku.

It's all their "poor little me" former colonial subjects who get on my nerves. Not the Poles - they've had a genuinely hard time - but all the other ones who think they have some inherent right to be counted as European, despite mostly being descended from hairy barbarians from the steppe.

I say give everything east of Vienna to the Russians and be done with it. They'd be happy, we'd be happy, what is there not to like?
