I HAVE AMMENDED THE SUBJECT HEADING ... SEE LATER POSTINGS

Dear Friends,

well this board has been going for over three years and the casual visitor may think that it is dead because of so little written activity - but the statistics reveal that there are regular visitors, maybe different ones, so people are obviously dropping by to read yet have little to say ... as to the people signing up I reckon that whilst some are bogus most are not.

So we'll carry on with it and see whether or not it picks up as the previous board did.

Repwblic.

A BGE 2010 Thread might pull in the punters, if sufficientily linked-to?

Dear City State,

thanks for looking in but I've no particular thoughts so far on the election - just watched the leaders in their head - on debate and thought that Cameron came over as shifty and Brown as smug so by default I notice that Clegg has topped the opinion polls that are pouring in afterwards ... there is a lot of activity out there on the web, most of it vacuous.

Exactly why didn't you start an election thread then ?

Keep looking in, I'll start one tonight - Dai.

When I dropped by to look at 'repwblic.informe.com' earlier I noted that situation once again - six people reading it at one moment but nobody writing on it - and I know that this is in contrast to the statistics on the 'repwblic.org' web pages where four people have visited this month ( and that is unusual as well.). Now I'm back I see three people on here and two or three is not so unusual so the material must be of interest even if 'repwblic.informe.com' has degenerated into my personal blog because nobody else is writing on it.

I'm expecting the renewal notice for 'repwblic.org' soon, and my paying for web pages that are not being viewed simply to have the kudos of the appellation 'repwblic.org' when I am presently the only person actually doing anything to promote 'repwblic' seems both a waste of my money and a trifle pretentious. One of the ideas behind 'repwblic' was that it would have no paper membership except that it would be a 'republic of letters' consisting simply of those who contributed postings to the bulletin board. There is no membership list, no subscription, no campaigns other than to get people to think seriously about the Welsh republican tradition and rescue the idea of a Welsh Republic from that who would pose as freedom fighters etc etc.

When your custom domain, repwblic.org, comes up for renewal, you will need to pay the annual renewal fee of £7.99/year plus applicable VAT for .com, .net, .org, .info (£10.99/2 years plus applicable VAT for .co.uk domain or £6.99/year plus applicable VAT for a .eu domain) by your expiration date of 2010-07-17*....

...There is nothing for you to do at this time, but note that you will need to pay the annual renewal fee when you receive your domain renewal notice approximately 45 days* before your domain expiration date. If you choose not to pay the renewal fee, your domain name will automatically expire and all associated e-mail addresses will be discontinued. Your Web site will remain active, but will be available at a Web address such as http://yourname.web.officelive.com.


*45 days = approx 2nd June ( Wednesday )

Since 'repwblic' remains as distinctive a word as before ( SOME will argue that its horrible and should be 'Gweriniaeth' and OTHERS will argue that it is an archaic spelling and should be 'repwblig' ) a web address such as repwblic.web.officelive.com doesn't seem so bad to me and being free is a lot less hassle to administrate since no fees or dates have to be remembered. It's only a slight problem to find new email addresses or to go back to using the old one repwblic@hotmail.co.uk.

Approximately 67p a month isn't that expensive tho Dai.

As for people not returning to the Repwblic.org main pages, i.e. not the forum itself - where ARE these 'pages'? All I have ever managed to load has been the one single front page that has barely changed in recent years.

Some more content for this main Repwblic.org is what is required, and we know you have plenty ready.

The " Repwblic.org " web page has been down for a whole year, in fact I was becoming inclined to let it go until the whole Martin Shipton affair blew up later in 2012. So I am still paying to maintain control of it but lacking in imagination or rather energy to implement what I have envisioned for it, which includes a sort of survey for people to complete.

" Repwblic@repwblic.org " ceased to exist when I let the microsoft deal lapse last year, returning back to use the email address " Repwblic - hotmail.co.uk " which I do not like for the " uk " bit at the end.

" Repwblic - hotmail.co.uk " was set up by Meic who opened this board after the argument on ctd.6.forumer - then having enticed me with my favoured word " Y Repwblic " he left it to me to administrate it ... and he left the emails going out labeled " Repwblic Cymru " which was not in conformity with my usage but there were few emails being sent from this administration email until recently ... so today I finally re-labeled them to go out marked in the way that I prefer which is as " Y Repwblic Yng Nghymru " = " Y RYN " which as an acronym evokes the nice little image of trams pottering down the incline ... just like next to my grandparent's house in Tonpentre which was worked by a winch / brake which controlled the descent of " y ryn lawn " which pulled up " y ryn wag " - only to be honest I have never been sure whether " y ryn " means simply " the run " i.e. that set of rails, or whether it means " a run " in the sense of " a journey " of trams hooked together i.e. to be sent off to a specific place, e.g. if the trams are full of MWC they should be going off to the tip with all of the other rubbish - after all MWC is such worthless dross that not even the eternal fires of hell with a billion years to spare could ever do other than reduce MWC to ashes - and therein we would still not be able to find anything of worth, would we ?

Returning to the point, it is that " Y Repwblic " is indivisble, it is no respector of classes or nations or geography or race etc - this is the universal and eternal order of things that we are arguing for, if only we can decide what that is ... so there can be no such thing as " Welsh Republicanism " or " English Republicanism " because by its nature Republicanism is cosmopolitan, debating how to govern the relationships between the whole world and its several parts - " think locally, act globally " - that sort of thing, or the other way round if you like.

http://repwblic.informe.com/attesting-the-flag-by-touching-the-trilliw-dt478.html

Hence I make a point of talking about " The Republic in Wales " and " Republicans in Wales " and " Conversations with Wales' Republicans " - and I treat the red, white and green Trilliw " fel symbol o'r Repwblic yng Nghymru " and talk of " Repwbligwyr yng Nghymru " - etc. - Republicanism and Nationalism are not synonyms, they are more or less opposites except in the matter of communities rejecting being unjustly ruled by others - Republicans do not want to replace one big lot of racist bigots with a smaller bunch of racist bigots on the basis of some shared national identity with them.

SO IN ORDER TO FINALLY SPELL THAT OUT I GUESS THAT I AM GOING TO HAVE TO DO EXACTLY THAT THING THAT MEIC AND I WANTED TO AVOID - AND USE REPWBLIC.ORG TO STAKE OUT A POLITICAL POSITION INSTEAD OF TRYING TO AVOID THAT IN ORDER TO CREATE A SAFE NEUTRAL SORT OF SOMETHING SPACE FOR THE FREE EXCHANGE OF VIEWS IN ORDER TO EXPOSE TO VIEW WHICH DIFFERENCES AND WHAT DEBATES ACTUALLY EXIST, AND EDUCATE PEOPLE A LITTLE BIT ...

Some sort of run of new Repwblic.Org pages will return to you screens in a week or so ... those will of course be Welsh weeks ...
