I'd not use it to attack Esperanto. I just think it's silly and childish
for some people i know to get THAT serious over any auxlang (I mean the
ones who actively preach it as the savior of the world, and will "get rid
of war forever" type). I've just found the more fundamentalist like
Esperantists I know to be over sensitive when anything even slightly
changes their language (I had one flame me for even suggesting that the
language could have avoided the criticism of the accents over certain
letters, if Zamenhof had used existing letters (since we all know in e-o,
you have to pronounce each consonant separately)
Note: I do not intend to get into a war about Esperanto (and this list is
of course not for that, as we all know ;)). I really don't care one way or
another about the language itself, just the attitude i've gotten from
