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. :) ). ======================================================= Tom Wier <artabanos@...> ICQ#: 4315704 AIM: Deuterotom Website: <> "Cogito ergo sum, sed credo ergo ero."
