I'm here...

I'm kind of a bit saddened by the decline, there's a lot of things going on in Cornwall, MK 60th, a new petition for a Cornish Assembly and recognition for Cornish as a national minority, but I'm still getting most info second hand.

Unfortunately, Cornish fora have, for some time, been subject to "attack" by those that, on one hand wish to do nothing more than pour scorn on, and ridicule the Cornish movement, and on the other by those who wish to stir up trouble. the latter group comprises people from both sides of the debate. It is doubly unfortunate that the first group, seemingly, also contains "people" from both sides of the debate as well. Some of those involved are people who, one would have thought, should know better. Rolling Eyes

Fortunately, both groups would seem to be rather small, but vociferous, and comprise many "sock puppets".
Fortunately, again, this site seems to have slipped below their radar.

What this has achieved is many of those who used to post to such sites regularly, and many who would otherwise have started, have dropped away. It's a shame, but what can you do? Evil or Very Mad

You guys shouldn't be put off by them. By being more bloody minded than they are, you can prevail.

After all, if you're a Cornish nationalist, it suggests that you're very bloody minded, since it's less of a mainstream position than Scottish or Welsh nationalism... although of course, both of those were in the same boat a few decades back.

In forums that I've run, I operate a three strike policy. By moderating the first three messages of any poster, you eliminate the vast majority of spammers and trolls.

The odd one slips through, but fast action usually deals with that problem.

Yes, strange but true.

Sometimes people pretend to be from the other side to stir up emotion. It only really works on people who are undecided though!

 Random Information. 
 The Charter Roll of 16 March 1337 announcing the Great (Duchy) Charter said that inspiration was drawn from the time when Cornwall was recognised as being a separate Kingdom, and that the intention was to "restore Cornwall’s original ancient honours".
