So, "in general", you're in one team with objective scholars like Eqrem Çabej, Eric Hamp, Calvert Watkins and Waclaw Cimochowski, while your recommended course for me is to follow Selishchev, whom I haven't read but whose work, I gather, has been used by Serbians with a nationalist agenda as a political weapon. That's a rather unpleasant insinuation. Am I being oversensitive, or do you really ascribe to me an anti-Albanian bias merely because I happen to disagree with you on linguistic issues? Those who have met me on this list for a long time will know how absurd that would be. As for the rest, I don't care.

> Thanks to You, now I doubt that we even have to deal with congates
at all. As everyone could understands, we have here to do with pure Slavic loans from (proto-)Albanian, becouse, as we see, these words in
Slavic are orphans.

The above is a reiteration of a patently false opinion for rhetorical effect, not a valid logical conclusion.

I rest my case too.
