I also agree that there is far too much OT discussion, and like the first
pleader I must confess (despite good intentions) I have let myself get involved
in it. If people must post OT material, I wish they would be more careful about
marking it OT--it is possible to set the listserv so amember will not to
receive OT material. I would also note that besides the totally OT material there
is a great deal of discussion of minor points about various natlangs; much of
this begins by use of an example relative to a conlang,but rapidly loses that
I would suggest that people discussing natlangs adopt a heading (NL?) and
that the listserv be adapted so the NL posts can also be omitted if recipients
wish.  If this list actually restricted itself to discussing conlangs, it would
be of a very managable size and very useful to me as a conlanger, but   as it
is I may be reluctantly driven to drop out simply due to having to wade
through all this irrelevant material.
