I think it might be a good idea to provide the link to the thread from which we quote the post of the month nominations, cheers.
It is not the challenges a people face which define who they are, but rather the way in which they respond to those challenges.

Yes I do realise I'm nominating Ponce for best post, however I think its a very astute observation on how people are influenced by the 'apperance' of another in judging their argument.

I have to nominate flyingzone for Post of the Month, one of his latest posts just absolutely did it for me:

Can you imagine Jesus advocating to drill the oilfields in Alaska?

They were not nomadic group. Nomadic nations do not build cities :)
Are you sure there was a core people? One of the possibilities Bulgarians appeared in north of Black Sea during migrations.

Thank you DayI. I am really proud that you nominated my post. Embarrassed
I still don't understand my mistake but I should mention how ingeniously you pointed to my mistakes. Here are some examples:
 
Quote
some rubbish wich is not worth to comment on...
This is more rubbish but i'll comment to stop him bark his bullsh*t. Dude really you need to re-take your history lessions or just read some more books on nomads, ...
Whats the big deal ffs!!!
Dude accept this damn fact for ffs, really im sick of such people
Couldnt understand this, they live between Turks and slavs, who are they then?
thats why you claim that bulgarian titles where slavic while you arent an linguist.
thats why you claim that bulgarian titles where slavic while you arent an linguist.
You can support it or not but dont be ignorant.
Underlined text tells much more then actually you try to tell me.
Dude really, there IS something wrong with you.
And then you invited me to join a site with "Russia for Russians" title on the first page.
 
Only stupid and ignorrant people like me cannot understand the meaning of such logically and beautifully constracted rhetoric. Thank you very much for your lesson. I nominate your answer to my nominated post.

the funny post the month would be this gem

Anyone who has ever read the Cattle Raid of Cooley would surely agree. Think about: Eire, all unsullied by cities and roads and industry. Just the good green world about ye, strong drink, good companions, maidens and riches to be won by the swords, glory in life, and a worthy death. Man, savage and noble, alone with his Gods and his sword. Ah! What times those must have been.

Imagine after a battle: Around the fire with the lads, passing forth the mead horn with the fellows you just recently fought, trading stories and honors, and then someone picks up the lyre and recounts the ancient sagas, and everyone is drunk and under the stars basking in the glories of the Gods and heroes past. Killing a fatted calf and eating the meat cooked over a fire served by the women who thought you were the Gods come again. I'll take it. Call me Cuchulain.

Ill take it, call me cuchulain..LOL
