There were a couple us, at least, there once upon a time. But, like you, we left :)

The thing to do is not to take it seriously. That was one of the problems on Auxlang: they all seemed take their favored IALs way too seriously IMHO. The experience was, however, salutary. I regard my BrSc project very much the same way as I regard a demanding crossword or Latin Prose Composition when I was at school - it's an intellectual exercise. Seen that way, it's an excellent antidote the stresses of so-called 'real life' - it stops the mental/psych problems dead in their tracks!
