Nominee would have cared anyway, and there is still an important difference. FYR Macedonians have been using the term "Macedonian"'for a long time. The Greek position -- that they are trying to "steal" someone else's identity. You might as well accuse the Bulgarians and Romanians of that since their names originate in the names of other groups. There was even a significant period in which the Greeks called themselves "Rhomioi." The Greek position is irrational and petulant.
