What if anything do the regulars on the site have in common? I am not posting a poll because I have absolutely no clue. Ideas? What makes us a queer little community? Are we a community?

we all think love is the greatest thing of all and some try real hard to deny it.

I guess, apart from banal "need in booze on regular basis" and "I'm so bored at work", it is a real community for people in need for socializing and communication in such a big city as Moscow :) Especially for expats, of course!:)

I would agree but I just asked myself what am I looking for. The only legible answer that showed up read socializing.

Doesn't matter where you put it...Bardak or Cafe, what binds the collective around here is...

It is our undying love for being the center of attention, albeit for just the moment of that last post before the next person opens their mouth. Our love to see our hallowed opinions in print for others to read. Our masochistic desire to see our trivial little personalities dissected and buried (or rather, cremated in the fiery flames) as we brazenly and sometimes even deliberately parade our word choice and grammar and spelling mistakes before the Expat Paragons of Proper English Usage.

Most of all, though, - we love that feeling of righteous indignation we get when we so soundly convince everybody else that they're wrong and we're right.

Opinions opinions opinions....just like assholes, everybody has at least one, and Expat is where you get to shake yours for the world to see.

Not all of us has pubic hair.

We are all open minded enough to interact with the multitude of cultures that fuse together here in Moscow, and we're all interested in making our collective lives easier and a bit more fun through gaining upon the knowledge of each other.

And we all like Allice!

Ghost, what you wrote is true for those climb out from behind their avatars and show up to Boozers in person; I believe what I wrote applies to the virtual part of the expat.ru community.

Although I like Allice in both places.

I think that this web site is apparently a good place to discover, and exchange great philosophical principles: for example, I dont know whom of you two cribed the other, but you allice seems to share the same values in life, with Kakrout...
He he he.
Maybe you could/should share the same purse...

Toofuses,

C'mon I think this could be an interesting discussion. The people I've met through this site are so very different people. :)

One of the many things we have in common is our willingness, desire, and ability to more or less express ourselves in writing. To form thoughts and engage in written intercourse (let's reclaim that word!). In writing you cannot be interrupted before you have finished making your point. The reader can fail to read what you wrote all the way through and you can fail to make your point as particular as you meant to make it or the reader can misunderstand. All of that can happen but at least you can imagine that the reader has read everything you wrote and understood your ideas as well as you were able to express them.

Hey whitebread, next time you decide to plagiarize me, can you try to be less wordy and more entertaining about it? Barring your ability to do that, then at least pull the stick out of your ass - you sound like a third-rate divorce lawyer!

Succinct my bloody boils!

Yeah you're right. I'll fix that signature. I hope your boils stop bleeding soon.

Is whitebread a serious insult where you come from? I don't talk like this, I write that way sometimes. Are you volunteering to be an 'insult editor' a la Triumph the 'insult comic' dog?

Where I come from, whitebread is the opposite of the dreaded "N-word" though I would be hard-pressed to convince you or anybody else that it's anywhere near as offensive.

I never volunteer for anything, unless it involves copious amounts of booze or pornography and there is absolutely no chance my wife will catch me with either.
