[QUOTE=Amphipolis;172092] Mathematics and statistics ARE my strength and you're lucky to discuss with an expert in the field. The number I gave was a very quick and rough estimation and I would correct it to 35-40%.[/QUOTE]
I love mathematics too.

[QUOTE=Gocka;172222]Well that would be one hell of a job to get paid for, to shoot the shit with the five of us.[/QUOTE]

That’s right! Amphipolis has his hands full whenever he takes on “the five of us”…BTW, I naturally assume you mean me too when you speak of the fabulous five…right?

I reckon we should name the rest of the members of our esteemed group don’t you think Gocka? We can’t have the riff-raff of this forum thinking they are special too. I’ll start the list off, here it goes:

There’s me (of course), then there’s your good self Gocka…Now about the other three? Hmmm…I really need some help here. There are around 50 or so active members to choose from on this forum and sorting out the really special ones from the duds isn’t that easy actually as they’ve all had something interesting and valuable to contribute from time to time. I give up, this is too hard for me Gocka…All yours mate.

3. I think I’ll insist on this. This isn’t so. The representation of diaspora is not small (as you imply) but larger than normal given that one MP corresponds to a very-very small number of voters. If I remember correctly one of three seats was recently left vacant as literally no one bothered to vote (i.e. less than a very low threshold). Secondly, I really doubt that people from Aegean Macedonia are denied citizenship in the Republic of Macedonia. Lately, I see too many people crying that they are stateless and usually this is a lie.[/QUOTE]

Careful Amphipolis you are slipping, I believe this is the first time you have actually referred to the Republic Of Macedonia by it’s constitutional name on this forum, if not well it’s the first time I have seen it. Now that wasn’t so hard was it

I hate any reference to the "constitutional" name. It suggests it ought to be hallowed and respected as though it's set in concrete. The same constitution nowadays give ethnic Albanians disproportionate rights and could (in an instant) give Macedonia a new constitutional name. Then people will be desperate to find a new way of saying "Macedonia" in the future. Something like "aspirational name" or "historical name" or "diaspora name".

[QUOTE=Phoenix;172229] is a pretty trashy site at the best of times...most of the stories that they run with are just sensationalist bullshit.

I think from day one of the name dispute the greeks have been full of shit and have always tried to play the's always about portraying the Macedonians as the aggressors and usurpers...I don't believe that anybody is falling for that shit anymore...the greeks have lost all credibility through their own general incompetence, economic mismanagement and endemic fraud...the glittering turd has truly lost its lustre...[/QUOTE]The shit talking started in Neos Kosmos as some kind of fake news, then it filtered into mainstream media.

In that case you should revisit your last post and edit all the numbers

Yeah Google Translate but it is not hard to guess it is just the unnecessary dots that are misleading I see some wrong centuries in it though. I'll translate it by myself when I have time.

Well done to the Macedonians who turned out in Australia today in support of our right to self determination.


I feel very proud today to be Macedonian, it's been a while.

"An estimated 30,000 Macedonians attended the Sydney demonstration"

That's pretty impressive. Congratulations to all who attended the Sydney demonstration. Besides Sydney, they would have come from all over the place (Wollongong, Newcastle, etc) and the number speaks for itself - 30,000 Macedonians. Awesome number. I'm very proud to be Macedonian today too.

Pretty nice to see.
I think it's pretty sad to still be protesting against Greeks. It's even sadder to be protesting against Fyromians.
