But the aging and dying empire battled more than the challenges of internal divisions, or an unforeseen but deadly pandemic and the empire's disastrous responses to it. The last generations of Byzantines had inherited a global reputation and standard of living that they themselves no longer earned.

What's this wee crap? You got outed as a Russian a long time ago.

Ah yes Tor ... I'm a Russian, you got me ... with that said if I'm a Russian then that would also make RCade a Russian as well. He'll understand if he reads this ;D

"Who are you, or were you, really?"

Not even an original ~ LOL

We had another weirdo, a long time ago, who led people to believe he was Rcade's cousin or some such thing. I can't recall the guy's name, only that he liked to disrupt threads with unrelated prattle of interest to nobody.~ like the parallel BlueWaffles just made of herself.

Ohhh I'm certainly not related to Rcade by any stretch of the means. But we do share our beginnings in life from the same area. :)

Somehow, I can't picture a man who thinks of himself as a blueberry waffle.

Nonetheless, part of the group that is playing games on this site. Wolfdog was another. He got bounced when a couple of us flagged him "Offensive." I think that's the only thing that gets Rcade's attention. I wouldn't hesitate to use that flag if, indeed, they start playing their mind games.
