Aaah. I was waiting for that one. It isn't a REAL flamewar until someone makes a Nazi reference. How does that old flamewar rule go again?
Hey, don't think I wanted a flamewar. I posted those msgs before I read Sally's appeal to ignore it. Don't take it too seriously. I'm just rather vulnerable on ethnocultural issues. Badly injured by totalitarian regime, y'see, pal? Indeed, why most of totalitarian regimes (not only the nationalistic Nazis in German "3. Reich") tend to oppress ethnic diversity? In late Soviet times most of the languages of ethnic minorities, their culture, religion etc. were in fact despiced, giving privilege to "velikij i moguchij" (great and strong) Russian... Anyway, if I did smth wrong, I'm ready to apologize.
