I apologise unreservedly, Evertype. I should not have done that.Evertype admonished:
I should be grateful to you if you would not put words into my mouth or speak about what I do or do not recognize.
I can make my own judgements without your help, and I can choose to make them public here or not, as I prefer.
It was wrong of me to assume that you might see any similarity whatsoever between the unreasonable appraisal of Alys and Marhak's stream of negative comments which followed, almost immediately, the post from the Kowethas about their book - you know, his suggestion that they had actively 'sought an endorsement' from 'an Englishman that knew nothing about Kernow'. And that it was a 'very hollow' endorsement, and that it was 'simply a popularist move'. Oh, and the subsequent drivel about how they might ask "English Heritage" or Dot Cotton or Jonathan Woss or Anne Robinson to endorse their next publication.
Actually it was quite absurd to think you might have seen some similarity.
So I should be grateful if you would accept my apology. No harm done, I'm sure.
I think you misread my response, Marhak. I didn't say that I 'don't think 'Keith' is at all unreasonable'. I said 'I don't think 'Keith' is at all reasonable'.Marhak reasonably asked:
If, "Pieter", you 'don't think that Keith is at all unreasonable (sic)', why are you not "stalking' him, too? Or is it your habit to apply double standards?
There are essentially two reasons why I'm 'not "stalking" him, too'.
The first is that he is not a well-known figure in the Cornish community whose opinions and assertions are often taken at face value and without question. I doubt whether many people take much notice of what he writes.
And the second is that you, GanOw and Evertype do a very good job of "stalking" him yourselves.
Under the circumstances he is best ignored, just as provocative posts from SalaciousCrumb and Goky and Carrek and.
wherever possible (unless they go far too far), GanOw and Evertype and myself are ignored by just about everyone.
So the circumstances are very different, and there are no double standards operating here.
Yes I do.Marhak went on:
And don't you think your erroneous assumption, stated as "fact", and ascribed to Evertype, is a prime example of your
It's not acceptable behaviour is it?
So Evertype rightly took me to task over it.
Just as I take you to task over it every time you do it. Time, after time, after time, after time, after time.
However, as you now appear to be able to recognise this behaviour in others we can only hope that it's just a matter of time before you'll be able to recognise it in yourself and deal with it.
It's my view that just about everybody involved in the Revival will heave a sigh of relief when you do, regardless of their orthographic background.
