IIRC, under the ancien regime, discussion of auxlangs was not forbidden, only promotion of them as auxlangs. That is, discussion of their technical details was allowed. I'm not aware that any intentional change in policy has occurred, though the occasional instances of auxlang-related trouble sometimes has the result of suggesting to people that discussion of auxlangs themselves should be forbidden. IMHO, this doesn't make a lot of sense. For one things, auxlangs stripped of their politics are as interesting as other conlangs. And Ingmar certainly seems to be capable of keeping within the allowed region of discussion, even if other auxlang authors aren't..! ObConlang: Drat. No activity for a long time... s.
