Cypriots are those who were born Cypriots (i.e. Cypriot parentage). Nobody should be eligible to 'become' a Cypriot. :wink:

I do commend you on your troll. All the same, are you ever going to answer the question you posted a while ago? We are all still waiting for your answer.

Both express some really ridiculous ideas.

My good man, if GIG and I were stranded on an island we wouldn’t be worrying about Cyprus at all… we’d just be having sex all day and eating casabas! :lol:



There you go instead of her letting "it" sit there collecting dust..it should be put to some good use
Maybe even put to work..

What's trolling about answering a comment which you made about me?

On the other hand, are you just going to bump up your thread or actually answer questions initially posed to you as the humble proposer?

How have we "lived" together?

...can't agree, but to be clear, are Cypriots limited to being Greek?

You asked them. You must have an opinion on them. Give us your answer, we want to hear it.

Isn't "no" the obvious answer?

I would not consider any slave owning society or a society that excluded people from the political process on the grounds of gender to be Democratic.

@DoctoredCyprus

Of course I have an opinion about the questions I asked. I know it very well. But I asked you these questions in relation to the debate which you set up.

Your (more than?) thrice-fold avoidance speaks volumes.

- Either answer them or we can correctly assume you have seen some uncomfortable hypocrisy in what you stated earlier.
