[QUOTE=toothpaste;2264]Deal.
You can call yourself whatever you like.When did i refuse that for you?

As for...what did they mean by Greek? I m not sure to tell you.Are you sure about what all people of the region meant by "Macedonian" in 1900's?

I already told you-some neighboring villages of my grandfather's village were [U]"Bulgarian" [/U]at that times...[U]in Macedonia[/U].
Blurred period..[/QUOTE]
It is that simple really isn't it.
Please advise Dora of your willingness to join the 20th century and allow us the right to self-determination.

I am positive what all the people of the region meant when they said Macedonian in the 1900's. I am not sure now, thanks to the Greeks seeking to rename their country into Macedonia.

I can do one better than you. In my Father's village they had a Bulgarian flag in 3 pieces. They were hoping to sew it together when the Bulgarians came in and liberated them from the Greeks. The suggestion being the Bulgarians would let them carry on as Macedonians. Another lie, just like the communists telling them they would have Macedonia for themselves. But we all knew what language they spoke didn't we Toothy.

What a load of hogwash. I can't believe how much in denial these people are.
Well documented facts about Bulgars, Turks, and Greeks and these idiots choose to believe otherwise.

I could add to that that in my great grandfathers village, which was quite large at that time, there were ONLY MACEDONIANS, and that is exactly what they called themselves. It was clear to them who the Greeks were, and who the Bulgarians were, invaders and interlopers, alien to the region.

[QUOTE=toothpaste;2285]My village's ppl don't remember any Macedonians.Just Greek(Ellines) ,Bulgarians(Voulgari) and Turks (Turki).[/QUOTE]

So you claim that they called themselves by their pagan name, Ellines and not by the name they went by the last millenia, Romeoi.

Isnt it funny how your village people who obviously are very Pro-Greek cant remember any Macedonians, are you from the north, south, east or west part of Aegean Macedonia?

Mother's side from central (Halkidiki) where there was not even a single slavic speaker.

Father's side Eastern Greek (or Aegean) Macedonia.

The Bulgarians (as they called themselves,and the Greeks called them so ,"Bulgarians"or Macedonians for you) of the nearby villages,where exchanged with Greeks of Eastern Rumelia and Bulgarian coasts after the treaty of Neiully.

The funny thing is that back then,although the Greek villagers called their neighbors Bulgarians ,and thought of them so...Greek scholars were trying to determine the slavic speaking population somehow else (Macedonian Slavs, etc) in order to make them alien to Bulgaria.

So...they were hiding a Bulgarian flag from the Turks...and what if in 1913 Bulgaria had annexed Macedonia (or in 1878 -San Stefano) as your father's co-villagers wished and prayed for?

Would there be a Macedonian nation,or a greater Bulgarian in 2008 ?

No, from the Greeks. Read it properly.
I would imagine there would have been another civil war either way.
