[Spellyans] Eddie's problems

Both Michael and Nicholas have clearly but politely brought it to my attention that the wording of my passing remark gave offence to Nicholas and one other on this list and I have taken that on board and made my apologies.

While surfacing the same concern you have managed clarity but seem unable to manage politeness.

Let me say that I have no intention of insulting anyone's intelligence and would have thought that enough of that had already been done by the Cornish Language Partnership.

I have two questions for you: 

(1) if you have "... never heard of 'Doris Ansari' and her 'anti-Cornish agenda' " what expertise, exactly, do you consider that you are bringing to any discussion about the Cornish language?  

(2) Do you have a problem with women having opinions?

Apart from a plethora of near slanderous gossip, Penny, do you have  
any linguistic contribution to make to the evolution of KS? After all,

-- I've never heard of 'Doris Ansari' and her 'anti-Cornish agenda',  
so by your own words, I
'shouldn't be in this list!'. Hah!

-- if by your tired, second-hand jibe of 'Big Ears Windsor' you mean  
Charles Duke of Cornwall, why not simply name him, without resorting  
to DC Comics super-villain nicknames? I imagine we are each capable  
of making up our own mind about how we feel about the Duke, without  
the help of your verbal cartoonage.

Your tone is tendentious and polemical and is, imho, rather  
inappropriate on this forum.

Please stop insulting our intelligence, Penny.
