As far as engelangs, I sure know Proto-Drem isn't I haven't really seen too many "engelangs", probably cause most are fairly naturalistic instead of aux-langish, which is generally a good thing. Probably the one thing that kinda makes me cringe is how IE "istic" most conlangs are, (which is probably why I don't even look at conlang grammars or phonology posts anymore).. probably cause most conlangers speak an IE lang, and so stick to thier roots instead of venturing into deeper water and take a risk on something completely different. But that usually takes time with people, and the 'regular' posters on CONLANG are pretty experienced, and so each adds thier own 'flavor' on conlang sounds and the 'feel' of them. And so most people that general post on CONLANG wouldn't be anything close to the typical "noob" that people snicker about.
