I'm glad that I'm not the only one to find this thread to be utterly childish, and seeking to perpetuate the divisions that have bedevilled the language revival for far too long. I'm one of many doing their bit to make the SWF work. Pity that others on this thread (Carrek excluded) can't do likewise. Get out of the past and work for the future, for God's sake.

Pass.

Shouldn't that be 'Pacc'? Or 'Pasc'? Or 'Pacs'? Or something like that?
