Thank you for the link to Cyprus-Conflict.
Here's one for you, possibly more relevant since it was 1953.

There were also signs, according to diplomatic sources at least, that Cypriot opinion had begun to show 'a surprising lack of sincere interest' in Enosis, Wagner, the US Consul, continued to speak of a, however latent, constitutionalist current of opinion. In October 1953, he ' appeared to believe that a timely British offer might induce a sufficient number of influential Cypriots to accept it 'out of political desperation or in self-interest'." Georgios Seferiadis, Greek Ambassador in Beirut, confirms that this prospect deeply concerned the Archbishop. After meeting with Makarios on 7 November, he noted in his diary that 'the Ethnarchy, despite its best efforts, cannot keep people's feeling on its side. The fear was that the prolongation of the present regime might prejudice the outcome of a plebiscite, even if it was held after two or three years.' In view of all this, Seferiadis concluded, 'something had to be done soon'.
Makarios' first reaction was to try to galvanise the faithful with ever more combative rhetoric.

He 'appeared to believe' - what's that? A metaopinion? :P

Not even venturing an opinion - but, a belief in the appearance of an opinion. :lol: What utter rubbish! Low, very low.

Having appeared to lose a round ( maybe she did, maybe she didn't, who cares!) with her "enemies of the north" she believes she can score a few consolation points by having a pop at something Jerry posted.

How pathetic. :lol:

Yeah, right Troll. Go and decorate yourself - a christmas tree perhaps, stand in a corner, light yourself up and keep still for the next eight weeks. :D

No, Jerry, what you are doing is trolling. My comment was a genuine response to the contents of a post. You then attacked me in a troll posting. I politely apologised to you (heaven knows why) and then you attack me again! :roll:

I started the thread, "Jerry" appears three times on page one and you didn't notice it was me posting. YOU responded to my post, YOU said it was utter rubbish and later referred to it as silly and yet I'm the troll? Words fail me.

Silly Jerry, where did I say 'it was utter rubbish'? What is 'it', anyway?

Have another look.

Did YOU write the bit I was criticising? No!

As stupid as it was, methinks it was somebody else who used such obscure connotations that amounted to metalanguage to avoid being sued for libel/slander. You are incapable of something so sophisticated ... :lol: :lol: More like Erolz's department! :wink:

Too many people seem to attack you, and I was always wondering if they see something in your posts, that I fail to see.
So far I am totally in the dark. :roll: Perhaps you are constantly getting misunderstood (?) -I don't know...

Coming back to the Cyprus conflict web site you should know that it was clearly IN FAVOR of the Annan Plan.
Imo the site is not impartial.

Someone PM'd me just last week pointing out again how much misogyny they witness directed at female posters.

- I guess you're not a misogynist that puts on their anti-female spectacles before they read my posts.

(With the post Jerry is fuming over, I merely got a tickle at the absurdity of the language and thought it worth a highlight for linguists.)
