I can probably name a couple of Isenfir residents who agree with
you. I wasn't asserting that I had a majority view, just that I
disagree with you. I wasn't criticizing your group's move to go
Barony; I don't live there. I was criticizing the absolute tone you
took in your mention of advantages of being a barony.

I am back in Isenfir again after living for 8 months in the Royal
Forest of Rusted Woodlands, which, oddly enough, is a large shire
which is discussing going Barony. The arguments I present here are
largely a result of listening in on their discussions. If you like,
someday I could show you numerous letters to the editor to the shire
newsletter, the Ferrugo.
