Precisely in line with the advice given in my original post on the subject, although I didn't see it necessary to quote regulations and sundry statutory acts.
To all else who responded,
I merely tried to point out that there is a HUGE discrepancy between the actual and standing requirements for schooling in Bulgaria as compared to those quoted/reported according to the advice claimed to have been received. I did, arguably, carry that argument a tad too far but did it for a purpose, which will hopefully make people more careful in the future.
That advice may have sounded and was interpreted as harsh and unsympathetic but at least it fully matches the reality and developments which have regrettably transpired in many a similar situation, which as pointed out, I have had the misfortune to deal with.
To the poster who insisted that I accused them of lying, my best advice for them is to go back to my post and re-read it more carefully (for lack of ambiguity, it expresses disbelief and tentatively puts forth an assumption that said forum user may not have fully grasped the substance of the premise put forth to them, which is that they hadn't complied with formal requirements ..... and not more than that).
