Master Aodhan, I was not offended by the phrase "Once and Every Other King"
but by the context in which it was used.  I interpreted the posting as
sounding a bit petulant.  The moniker is amusing and I have used it upon
occasion as well.  My note was simply a request to keep things on an
intellectual and rational level and to not begin name-calling.  Especially to
those who are not on this net and therefore cannot defend themselves.

If I have caused offence to either  M'lord Popalisky, yourself, or anyone
else please accept my apologies.  As stated earlier I was only reminding
people to keep this civilized.

And, yes, I do have a life.

Dia duit!

Anyone offended by that needs to get a real life.

 "RP> I thought it

 "RP> Future King that had to do with his ability to win Crown and

I coined that phrase after his 3rd reign because he'd been King 3 times over
period of 6 consecutive reigns.  Unfortunately, a bard picked it up and ran
with it.  Also, unfortunately, Inman doesn't no when to quit and has sat the
throne entirely too many times.  And I don't consider telling the people and
officers of a Kingdom to violate the edicts of the BoD being a good King.

 "RP> It just seems odd to hear folk saying "it's being rammed, how dare

 "RP> sort one would expect foul play and chicainery from.

Not at all odd when what you have in fact heard from your Baron is that one
those "respected" persons said that it *would* be rammed down our throats. As
I've stated before, that pronouncement radically altered the tone of the
discussion during our meeting. So, I'm not the only one that heard that; in
fact, three other peers, all with well over a decade and half of activity in
the SCA, heard it.
