Poll by Email No. 12.9

From:Peter Clark <peter-clark@...>

        This week's poll is a two-parter. The first question relates to a recent
thread: What was the most extreme (negative) reaction you have received from
another person when they discovered that you invent langauges?
        A. I've never told any non-conlanger, so I've never gotten a reaction.
        B. An uninterested "hmm..."
        C. A suspicious "Oh, really???"
        D. "That's stupid!"
        E. "You're nuts!"
        F. "You shouldn't do that!"
        G. "Hello, operator? I need the number to the nearest insane asylum!"

        And the second question is a simple yes/no question (easier on your humble
Poll Provider): Are you superstitious? (And in case you are wondering, I
really don't have a thing against the number 13; in fact, I really ought to
have asked this back in the fourth poll, but didn't think about it then.)
        A. Yes.
        B. No.
