Thank you Gerard for telling me what is history, I was not there. :)

What arguments Gerard? You and steward have let massive attack on that 
request, I have spent 3 days without sleeping talking with stewards and 
begging them to do something. Instead you just let request to come to 
situation to be useless. Discussion there was nothing but spam pushing 
with personal insults and causations deliberately aimed to destroy 
request. And you used it as reference?

come on Gerard,

I asked FOR ONLY ONE THING! To give evidence that request was 
politically motivated as that statement was official decision of LSC. 
You give nothing but empty statement. Again.

Is it so much hard for you to do that? Incredible.

Accuse? No Gerard I just say that you cant claim that Montenegrin is not 
language just based on your opinion what is language.

Why you don't show that exhaustive reference to your research on 
Montenegrin language? I would be very thankful to see that. If you did it.

Thank you
