I believe one person has already mentioned that he found
the list first, liked it, and decided to join the endeavor for
himself. It seems to me that I have seen Conlang as a list
posted on my sites, instructing people how to join, and
consequently, it seems to me that there would be quite a few
who just would find it, with no prior experience, and find they
liked the level of discourse here (I have noted that this is a
relatively calm and collected group compared to some
others -- we have few, if any, agendas here. :) ).
