tobi34 that is really poor argument, you wrote yourself that Macedonians are not antic (Greek) Macedonians and then you listed person ( Georgi Pulevski ) who claimed so..
Rex Hatson that is better, but is that enough? I mean that is one source, vs. buch of others which for example show Macedonia as Bulgarian land, rarelly Serbian , or partly Serbia..for example ethnic maps from 19th century?
What are your thoughs? Also bare in mind that Austrians are not the best source because that tried to create new nations on the Balkans, for example Bosnian. You know that pan Slavism was strong, that was very bad for Austria in that momnet, which was power without colonies and with bunch of inner problems, so my opinion is that that was one of the reasons. Maybe I am wrong though.
