Let's see if I can follow: "olasz" for the Franks is derived
from the Slavic "vlasi". But the Slavs used "vlasi" for the
Romanians who and the Slav-Romanian borrowings started at least
as early as the 7th century. The Slavs never called the Romanians
"volks", neither they use "vlasi" for the Franks.

Yeah, right. Please quote one Hungarian document that used

Your example is not relevant. "Wallis" is probably derived

So a Hungarian active voice can correspond to an English passive voice,
and so what? In many cases a good translation involves bigger
transformations, a noun corresponding to a subordinate clause, an
adjective becoming the base of the verb, etc etc

You didn't invoke Iancu true. I didn't say you did. I said you mixed
up Codreanu with Iancu in a manner I find insulting. 

This tactic of refuting a point that I didn't make while not refuting
the point I did make is called knocking down straw men. It only
works with simple minded fools that don't have enough memory
to recall the original subject but simply flail around reacting
to whatever is around them. I can understand why you use it with
some of the people here. They fit the description. They are the
kind of people who get led around by govt. provocations into 
supporting many splinter factions of nationalists instead of 
uniting to throw our own set of very nasty bums out of power.

I however do have a bit of a memory. You did call Codreanu "your 
evolutionary mutation" in the message to A. Iancu (his real name
as I later found out). This is an inappropriate association IMHO.
Defend it with quotes from the originals or withdraw it.

Well, I just got beck from Hungary and the ATM situation is pretty saddening
over there. I was broke for a whole week because all the ATMs were out of order
(at least the ones I tried to use). Finally I had to go some of the bigger
banks and do it over the counter. It took them forever to do the transaction.
They tooke my card and my passport. They filled out a slip and put down the
amount in forints (that I would get), then the amount in dollars (that would be
charged on my card) plus they added a percentage for doing the transaction.
They recorded my US address for their records then they had to call someone
else in another city  to get the whole thing verified. Then they filled out
another slip with the same info and finally I got my money.
Another thing: some banks will only take MC, some take only Visa. The bigger
bakns that are worth trying: IBUSZ Bank Rt., Magyar Kulkereskedelmi Bank, OTP.
IBUSZ Bank Rt. took only Visa (that was a month ago, they might have changed
their policy since then).
What was even more dissappointing is the fact that only a few stores take
creditcards. I tried to use mine at Benetton, Adidas, etc, and they didn't take

I did not write the "long nationalist call to arms". It was some of your
compatriots who wrote that extremist anti-Hungarian tract. It was they who
invoked Avram Iancu's name, not me. I did not do the mixing up. The content of
the "long nationalist call to arms" as you euphemistically put it, is an
insult to me, a threat to your Hungarian neighbours, and it should be an
insult to you. You are mixing up the bearer of the message with the author of
the message. You should address your hurt pride to those who created the
message. If anyone owes you an apology, it is the authors of the "long
nationalist call to arms" who invoked the name of Avram Iancu. Correct me if I
am wrong, but I don't believe Avram Iancu was motivated by anti-Hungarian
hatred -- but the message carried under his banner by the anonymous authors
are the ones who have committed the rude behaviour that has insulted you, so
don't use me as your whipping boy.

What is this expectation that poets should be consistent? I'm not a politician
-- I'm a poetician. I will do what ever is convenient to me and to my
advantage. If you have difficulties with that, so be it. It is of no concern
to me. The internationally reknown artist, Michael Snow, at a major
retrospective of his work, said "First of all I make up the rules of a game,
then I play it. If I appear to be losing, I change the rules." It's quite
simple, effective, and I like it this way.

I have no doubt that you are not a brainless strawman. I don't think your SCR
compatriots will appreciate being referred to as brainless strawmen -- who
precisely are you referring to? Whether I annoy you or not is of absolutely no
concern to me.

I did not stir up any ethnic trouble. I did not write the "long nationalist
call to arms" as you described it in another thread. I did not write that
anti-Hungarian tract. Decius, Decius, Decius, address your complaint to those
who wrote that ethnic-hating piece. I only posted it -- you are mixing up the
bearer of the message with the author of the message.

Americans of African descent are a minority all over the United States and
their name has been nigger (niggah is some dialects). Go walk up to a dark-
skinned American and call him a nigger -- you'll get what you richly deserve.
Ask them what they would like to be called. Indians have been called indians
by misguided people of European descent. They are not. They have names for
themselves. I have learned to treat them, as a people, with repect and call
them by the name they wish to be referred to. Come to Canada and you will see
a disproportionate number of Native Canadians drunkedly wandering the streets.
There is a disproportionate number of Native Canadians in jail on conviction
of a wide assortment of petty crimes. None of this means that I should
describe them, as a people, as predators, or to degrade them, as a people,
with many of the postings I read on SCR authored by your compatriots.

I call them Roma. It is the name they prefer to be called by. It is my respect
for them as a people. I do not deny that a disproportionate number of them
have committed a wide assortment of crimes. This has never been denied by me.
My case is simply to respect them, as a people. Indian is a Euro-centric label
imposed on Native People, Oboriginals as you wish. Tigan is a Romanian-centric
label for the Rom. Step outside your ethno-centricity for a moment, and maybe
your vision of assorted cultures and nations will broaden.

>It is only the group that wears a label that can really

There was very little "good behaviour" shown on the part of some of your
compatriots on SCR. Calling an entire people predators satisfies what?
Declaring that "Even a peaceful population has the right to burn the
predators" as was posted by one of your compatriots, solves nothing -- indeed
it exacerbates the matter even more.

Many of the postings by some of your compatriots described the Rom, as a
people, in a manner which was racist.

There, I have addressed your point, perhaps not to your satisfaction, but you
have not entirely satisfied my points. I have posted the dates, the places and
citations concerning the homes of the Rom that have been burned to the ground.
No one has responded in kind. There has been responses against me for being
anti-Romanian, etc. Well then, the International Labour Organization is anti-
Romanian, the UN Human Rights Commission is anti-Romanian. Amnesty
International is anti-Romanian, except of course, when it defended ethnic-
Romanians against the human rights abuses perpetrated by Ceausescu's regime,
or the regime in Trans-Dneister. Grow up Decius and look beyond your own
ethno-centricity and you'll see that the world is moving forward.

I was in Budapest 4 years ago and I too noticed the high level of 
air pollution. There are two main sources: the Budapest Transit
Company still uses locally manufactured buses with diesel engines.
These engines are inefficient and purly maintained. You can see
black smoke comming out of the exhaust system when-ever they 
accelerate. The other source is passenger cars: there are still 
many two stroke engines left from the former Eastern-European 
auto manufacturers (although their number is deminishing as they
find their way to the junk yard).
