That seems awfully arrogant to me. "I realise there is an established forum for conlanging. However, it's not good enough for me, because it's blocked by my ISP, so please, everyone leave your forum and join mine, which is better because it's mine. Or post everything in two places, for my convenience -- your choice." And it's not just you; I've seen this sort of thing in other places, too (for example, Lojban) -- someone comes up with a new place and invites everyone to join, without giving good reasons why the existing places, which people already use to exchange information, are not good enough.
