 This is a "flame war"?  I was under the impression that "to flame" meant
 to personally attack a person.  This seems to be to be a very reasonable
 discussion, albeit one which is completely off-topic.

I still feel strongly for the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis which supposes that one
perceives reality along the lines determined by language (in a way, that the
language we speak determines how we think).  I _had_ thought the link to
conlanging rather self-evident.  However, suitably chastised, I return to lurk
mode.  Thanks for the insights, those who contributed!
