Don't think so, Kifeas. Notice:

What does the 'ai' spelling, instead of 'e', tell you?

I think it's just another Greece-obsessed Cypriot youth who hasn't even bothered to learn proper Greek, but still feels qualified to speak of reviving the Byzantine Empire, restoring the Agia Sofia and Karampela's balls (ta paparia tou Karampela). And I'm not so sure that our local Greece-obsessed youths are any better, either.

I thought about the "ai" too but on the other hand the wrong endings of the words are a typical mistake made by people who learn Greek by hearing rather than by the book.

I do not think there are people in Cyprus who genuinely believe in this nonsense, nowadays. Not even the most fanatics. I am sure this person, whoever he is, perfectly knows that all these "ultra -patriotic" slogans are nothing more than just nonsense. The reason he is doing it is probably to wind up and provoke others and then to get him self amused by having them reply back to him. Once someone replies back to him either to reprimand him or to attack his postings in a similar fashion, then he feels content for having achieved his purpose, which was to irritate people.

Furthermore, I tend to believe that it is the same person coming back with different nicknames (NicktheGreek, NikosSampson, Eoka-warrior, etc.) The writing style seems quite similar.

I personally know no one who has such ideas in Cyprus nowadays. No political party preaches such ideas today and definitely nothing like that is taught at schools either.

Who is Karampelas by the way?

Goes without saying.

Hmmm... guess I partly disagree. I agree it's nonsense, and I agree it's not taught 'anywhere'. But the attitude, the stance, does exist, predominantly amongst ignorant youths. It's not that they know what they're talking about, it's just that the little they do know is enough to get them there, if distorted enough in their own heads.

LOL. No one in particular, it's just an expression. PM me an email address and I'll send you the audio file of the conversation I got it from. It's a good laugh. :lol:

Eoka-Warrior said
Near the gates there would be one MASSIVE statue that had one leg on either side of motorway, it would be of Tasos Papadopoulos holding a burning torch as if he has just recieved it from hero of Cyprus - Makarios, leading the way forward, in the other hand would be a giant sword that he would be holding up. At the heighest point of this sttatue, the sword that Papadopoulos is holding, would be around 8000 Metres in height.


And right above that statue there would be one of me holding my dick giving him a golden shower all day every day. :lol: :lol:

That reminds me of the impressive figure of a Cypriot guy which is placed every year in the municipal garden in Limassol during the wine festival :)

I haven't come across that name before.. But I believe it is:) The statue doesn't have sword, however. Just a bottle :)
