Could be. ::dusts the scorch marks on emailbox::

That's odd. I thought AuxLangers loved regularity to the point of complete artificiality.

Oh talkin' of Klingons and causin' a lingua fracas... I once popped into a online chat of "Star Wars Vs. Star Trek" fan(atic)s. They were debatin' the relative virtues and subjective greatness of their particular fav sci-fi "world." I lurked for a bit before someone asked me to "speak up." I said Star Wars is feudalism and latent fascism dressed up in sci-fi opera drag. And that Star Trek was no better: that it is a militarized society giving lip-service to being democratic and moralistic, when in fact it is neither democratic or moral - being more or less imperialistic and downright manipulative/Machivellian. Long story short: I continued to receive hate email for like 2 years after that... The worst hate-mailer was a person with the screen-name of "Sith Vader" (or something like that) - he/she/it would send 169 hate-emails a day @_@ ObConlang!: Also a few years ago, IIRC some our overly-rambunctious, _highly prominent_ colleagues * on this here list decided to "slum" in AuxLand with the expressed purpose of starting a lingua fracas. ::sarcastic tone:: Reaaally bright idea, guys... Suffice to say all beat a hasty-albeit-triumphant retreat - but some did get nasty email for a bit (2-3 weeks). And we did get a few dozen "visitors" ourselves on this list from _that_ AuxLang list... still spoiling for a fight. (I think we still do sometimes... but I could just be a tad lil bit paranoid.) This just another reason (amongst a plentitude) why this list has such marked, virulent antipathy towards AuxLang "politics." * ::zipz ze Z lipz:: not naming any names --- Hanuman Zhang (aka "Z") WOG (Wiley Oriental Gentleman ;) Avatar of Sun WuKong, a.k.a _Ma-Lau_ ("Monkey") a.k.a.
