Hi Alexander!

There is one thing (at least) I don't really understand concerning these thread
why should the Hungarians (and those writing from a non-Romanian point of view)
the ones who "have to be careful in what" they "say". Anthony made a statement
he believes. You cannot prove by any means that Romanians have always been the
majority in Transylvania. I don't know about any historical evidence proving 
this up to very close to Trianon (and then it still was a rather close call).
So I think you should also be careful in stating that Hungarians "had been and
continued to be a minority" in Transylvania, because their minority status
has only developed as the result of the sneak-invasion (migration) of Transylva
by Romanians. So I think that this kind of interventions of yours are purely
propagandistic. They no way fit into the picture of many other postings of your

The great myth about the expulsion of the Silicone Crew from HIX keeps
growing and evolving.  The story gets more dramatic and exciting by the 
week, with the evil forces of censorship lined up against Toth, Szucs, 
and the rest of the clones.  Every last one of them a veritable martyr of 
free speech, fighting the good fight to the end.  Since a sucker is born 
every minute, I suppose there might be someone out there ready to fall for 
this version.  The truth is far more prosaic.  Like most of the stuff 
pouring forth from silicone.com, the Great Censorship Story is a hoax.  
Dr Pellionisz & Co were kicked out for theft, pure and simple.

Since "Joseph Toth" bills himself as a publisher, one would assume he must
have heard of the notion of copyright.  This concept is defined by the
Berne Convention, and applies in the same way in all signatory countries.
Essentially, you as a publisher have the right to publish three kinds of 

 - stuff written (and automatically copyrighted) by yourself;
 - stuff that is in the public domain;
 - stuff published by permission of the copyright owner.

Note that the only things in the public domain are the work of long dead
authors, and stuff explicitly placed in the public domain by the copyright
owner.  The materials "borrowed" by NEMZET were emphatically not in the 
public domain.  Everything published since 1989 anywhere in the civilized 
world is automatically copyrighted, whether or not it carries a copyright 

One of the copyright owners whose material was regularly purloined (the 
Batthyanyi Foundation, or BLA for short) protested repeatedly and in public, 
to no avail.  Dr Pellionisz and his cohorts reacted with the usual mix of 
red herrings and twisted logic, and the NEMZET kept pushing the stolen 
material as if nothing happened.  Their line was (and is) that since BLA 
itself was reprinting material originated elsewhere, the stuff was free 
for the taking, by NEMZET or anyone else.  This is patently false.  Either 
BLA had permission from the original copyright owners, or it did not.  If 
it did, this permission did not extend to the NEMZET.  If it did not, then 
the material in NEMZET was pirated twice over.

At this point, either the Batthyanyi Foundation or the owner of hungary.com
(a commercial publisher distributing BLA under contract) could have taken
legal action against the silicone folks.  They did not.  (Note that 
copyright violations involving over 10 copies, and a commercial value over 
$2,500, are felonies under U.S. law.  Smaller amounts are subject to civil 
penalties.)  This made the editors of NEMZET even bolder, and they started 
lifting stuff from HIRMONDO, an electronic journal distributed through
the facilities of HIX.  At this point, even Jozsi Hollosi (a person with 
the patience of Job, and skin as thick as an elephant's hide) took offense,
and decided to act.  Instead of calling a lawyer, he made his point by 
deleting Dr Pellionisz and his crew from the HIX subscriber lists, and 
forwarding all incoming mail from them to the great bit bucket in the sky.  

Since then, Mr "Toth" and crew have been wasting their time fulminating 
against HIX, and spinning ever more baroque myths of censorship, with a
tortured scenario involving ancient tales of conspiracies at the time
of the taxi blockade of 1990.  I believe that's the right year.  Rather 
than wasting time on these delusional theories, Mr "Toth" could do
something constructive, like boning up on copyright law.  

If you know nothing about the topic, a good place to start is the home page 
of Brad Templeton, the founder of ClariNet.  ClariNet is an electronic 
publishing house with 1,200,000 paid-up subscribers.  They must be doing
something right.  As a budding publisher, Mr "Toth" might learn something 
from a guy who has been making a living from electronic publishing since 
1989.  I especially recommend Brad's paper "10 Big Myths About Copyright 
Explained".  It is written in layman's language, without the usual lawyerly 
gobbledygook.  You'll find it at <http://www.clari.net/brad/copymyths.html>;.

Once you digested Brad's paper, you will be ready to move on to the more 
demanding material in the Copyright Law FAQ, and the actual language of the
law accessible through the Web at the Library of Congress site.  Brad has
all the pointers set up for you.  Just click to find out about more 
advanced topics, such as the concept of "fair use".  And if you are still
unclear on the concept, then you might try one of the many extension 
courses on copyright and publishing offered by universities, adult schools,
and community colleges everywhere.  It is never too late to start picking 
up on these things.  If the whole editorial staff of NEMZET were to enroll 
together, you might even get a group discount.

Those "black players" are Dutch.  Most of them are born in the country (of
the current Dutch squad, I think only Winter was not, and he grew up in
Amsterdam as well).  They happen to be part of our culture, and most Dutch
(there are some exceptions, alas) couldn't care less about the colour of
their skin.  We also had a player of Chinese descent in our team once, in
case you're interested (Tshenla Ling).

To say that you have *NOTHING* in common with another human being because of
his colour betrays you as racist.
For your information, as far as I know the only non-Dutch-born Ajax players
are two Nigerians and a Finn.  I'm sure you want the Finn back.

You're either deliberately lying or incredibly ignorant.  There were
distinct monkey sounds whenever a black Ajax player had the ball.

That is not to say that Ferencvaros supporters are all racists (but a
small minority apparently is, like at other clubs), not that Ajax
handled the matter in any mature manner (it indeed smacked of hypocrisy).

> It is a Hungarian thing. Well, we don't riot, don't destroy ships,

There were riots after the 1994 Hungarian cup final, and when you played
Slovan Bratislava, to name but two well-documented examples.  I don't
say that Ferencvaros supporters were the main culprits in either case,
but you can't say there isn't a hooligan element at Fradi.  Unfortunately.

Frank Rijkaard wasn't even in Budapest.  The whole moral indignation came
from coach Louis van Gaal and president Michael van Praag.  Both not
lacking a bit of double standards, it's true.

You are probably referring to that letter in Marca (or As).  Rijkaard
signed it, along with Johan Cruijff and e.g. Jan Timman.  That letter
was indeed a remarkably foolish thing, but Rijkaard certainly did not
start it.

As for judging Rijkaard from the Voeller incident only, that is very
shortsighted at the least.
