True, one can find great beauty and delight in all these things, but
then one can find beauty and delight in anything if one views it in a
sufficiently aestheticized way, even a dogturd; and I will adamantly
not concede an aesthetic equivalence between a dogturd and the
Moonlight Sonata. (To my mind there is a definite hierarchy of
aesthetic value, with the Moonlight Sonata around the top, the
dogturd around the bottom, and conlanging around the middle.)

agree on a common definition, then it amounts to nothing more
than name-calling.
