Can you imagine how much fun it was before The Great Split, when we were all
playing in the same sandbox? I was on both lists for quite a long while after
the split, but I really doubt the need and desire for any sort of IAL, so
Ieft Auxlang for lack of anything to contribute.
Besides, artlangers hardly ever break out into fits of "My artlang is
superior because it has these features and your artlang sucks because it has
those features." That sort of argument wouldn't even make sense, except
possibly as a joke between friends.
