    I might do that Aelfgar, and I am going to admit right now that I was wrong about Scotland and England not being significantly Germanic. From doing some more digging it appears to me now that the lowlands of Scotland as well as much of England has significant Germanic contribution.

    Velvet I think its good you are able to speak in a aggressive way to people but I am here to do what I can to help Germanic people, of which I am one according to DNA analysis. So I don't enjoy talking to people who speak in an unprovoked aggressive way towards me, so I am going to put you on ignore. I just want you to know though that I am not trying to discourage you from speaking in the way that you do. I think its good to be able to talk like that to people who are not friends of your tribe. But I really just don't feel like talking with people who are not interested in a civil discussion. I think speaking in a uncivil manner is important but generally people of the same tribe are supposed to be respectful of each other.

    You come on this board, apparently without reading its mission statement, and start spamming the forum with "France should be included". You base your assumptions on highly unreliable, and in case of 23andme, intentionally wrong groupings and falsified results (the company is widely known to return false results, if they return results at all, that is). While ignoring the question in this thread (#147), you write the anti-national piece "A defense of civic nationalism". furthering the impression that you're not interested in a forum community, but only here to promote multiracialism.

    I recommend using the search function as this topic has been discussed several times already. To sum it up, Skadi does not have a forum dedicated to France/the French, as Skadi's definition of the term Germanic is an ethno-linguistic one. While that naturally includes genetic substance, genetic substance alone is not enough to make someone Germanic - just like linguistics alone is also not enough; Germanicity is a combination of both factors. The French as a whole are a mix of several meta-ethnicities (Romance, Celtic and Germanic), and that I'm afraid is not enough to warrant them a particular section on the forum. Now of course some of the French, like the Alsatians, Lorrainians and Normans, as well as their colonial descendents (Acadians) are more Germanic than others, and the board does recognize this and consequently accepts, from time to time, members of such background. However, the staff usually evaluates them on a case by case basis - we accept those who are partially or peripherally Germanic at best. Skadi promotes, among others, cultural and linguistic preservation in addition to ethnic and genetic preservation.

    As far as phenotype is concerned, it usually only tells half the story. Being of a certain phenotype does not automatically qualify someone as Germanic just like being considered "atypical" does not necessarily disqualify. Germanics can vary phenotypically speaking, yet genotypically, they are all related. I am sure you're seen plenty of examples of siblings who do not look like each other, or like their parents or other relatives, and yet they come from the same genepool. For example, a brown eyed Germanic can have a blue eyed gene or viceversa.
