I don't have a "peculiar vision" of things, if anyone has a peculiar vision of what monarchism is it is you. I have in fact a more practical vision of wanting to transcend any sort of traditionalist, liberal or conservative ideas which in fact is what monarchy really should do, whereas you seem incapable of transcending your own sort of traditionalism to give unqualified support for monarchism.

I don't owe anything to you. As far as I'm concerned you're just a nonentity on a message board so I shouldn't waste my time anymore.

I was referring to your peculiar vision of the purpose of this forum and what should be discussed here. Your entire criticism of me relies on my comments distracting from some kind of direct and immediate monarchist purpose. If this is just a normal message board, with a monarchist theme, it is hard to see the basis for your criticism, especially as I do not tend to comment on the issues you dislike except where the discussion is already about culture or theory.

I do in fact, welcome monarchists of all kinds and support monarchy in general. I have, indeed, defended members from attacks by conservative monarchists simply for not being conservative. You are conflating sometimes discussing more than monarchism in an entirely non-denominational way here for not supporting monarchism in general. I am not sure where you derive the foundations for such a claim, except, again, your view that the purpose of this forum is not just a comfortable place to discuss monarchism, but some kind of place for direct and immediate organisation and action for monarchism.

And yet again I will point out you just as often comment on controversial and divisive topics as me. You, more often than not, do invoke your own brand of conservatism in your comments. Often your comments are not even on monarchism directly. That conservatism may be a little bit more mainstream than my traditionalism, but it is still not shared by many on the left, right, and in the centre. And whilst my traditionalism is going to be more off-putting to some as it is less mainstream, your conservatism is closer to the popular conservatism - in tone and content - that is constantly battling popular left-liberalism, which in some ways means your conservatism is more likely to put off those in the centre and on the left.
