What the hell is this about?

Christiano, this thread is hopeless enough (as most of us can't
participate in the discussion anyway due to lack of fluency in
Ukrainian), so please don't go about spreading rumors and general
allegations on the Macedonian Wikipedia in corpore.
I apologise if I'm misreading something but the "It's in the blood"
thing sounds utterly racist to me and this will be not tolerated on
this list.

Really, everybody, take a step back. I think that this is an issue
where (see above) foundation-l is not really the place to find a
solution. If Brigitte's solution is acceptable to all, I'd recommend
that rather such a way of "mediation" or "third party opinion" be
pursued, anything else seems a bit pointless.
