Hi, Brighid here.
The original message being quoted here (the one about the differences
between Ealdormere and An Tir bardic circles) was from me.
The person who responded is �trolling for bunnies� as my lord puts it.
I have met this man in person. I was chatelaine of Skeldergate in
Ealdormere at the time and I spent about 45 minutes with him, at one
meeting. He has received many offers of help at getting to events from
myself, from my lord, from any number of people. Each one has been
summarily rejected, and the encounter twisted by him, into some sort of
prejudicial, deliberate attempt at excluding him and tormenting him.
I and several of my friends have had run-ins with him both in-person, and on
a number of lists that we are on, over a period of some years. He has
cradled close every imagined slight and parades them out every so often.
Since those incidences did not occur here, please hold me excused from
repeating them. I do not believe this is an appropriate forum for it.
The last time he popped up on a list I was on, I contacted him privately to
resolve the issue. He showed not the slightest interest in resolving the
problem, accepting a simple apology, or even agreeing to let the matter drop
I can only conclude that he suffers from a martyr complex, and pity him.
But I won�t be bothering to continue to indulge him in it.
Utinam barbari spatium proprium tuum invadant!
Utinam coniurati te in foro interficiant!
Utinam logica falsa tuam philosophiam totam suffodiant!
Spero nos familiares mansuros.

i do apreciate your considerate remarks. however i attended dozens of
meetings and e mailed dozens of people and was never able to get any
help of any kind to go another event. unfortunately for me the person
who helped me go to the one i got to was ostracized after some
slander was spread about them and they dropped out. slander put on
their e list, proved a lie and ever apologized for.
presently they are saying on their e list i am schziophreic and
without medication. completely untrue on both counts but typical of
my experiences i heldormere. i addition a lie was posted that i was
seen arguing with a person to get i free at an event . i was offered
to get i half price for playing at the one event i did attend. i sat
with new people, they were ice, but no one talked to me who was sca,
except two who complained about 1. the an tir holy roman one true
apostolitic church--which i find funny but am ot a member of and 2.
that my siging wasn't loud enough. maybe the latter was true, i had
been busking eight hour before the event, but i wouldn't approach a
new person that way.
previously a slander was posted that i had crimially harassed some
one--again untrue, but i couldn't sue as they posted it under a
slkande is acceptable i heldormere.
i was also unable to find dorectios or gold key again for the dozen
or so evnts i iquired about--all before the slander blow outs i might
oh yeah at ardchreag i was told gaelic was "a fucking gobbledly gook
language" kind of ironic as they pretend to be gaels. they are the
usual anglo ontario bigots. who do they hate most-- fraco/gaels from
the east--canada's traditional "white trash"(of which i am one)
what really galls me is people like brigh postinng how great they are
and denegrating an tir. ab tir has at least a half a dozen bardic
events, like celtic bardic, ermine cross, and oriannia's that are
larger than almost all events in heldormere. these are big fun events
with may who actually play instruments--almost uknown i heldormere.
now i used to get very upset at the slander but now that i know they
are anglo bigots i understand. thirty years ago whe i first wet to
otario to work i the tobacco fields we would be swarned in town and
spit o and called dirty nova scotias and dirty catholic--with much
colorfull language attached. i would never have entered a anglo group
except that in an tir i was repeatedly invited and was treated like a
king by at times hundreds of people , i can get used to that
