He's not in the wrong place. He's in the right place but doesn't understand the local culture and assumes that all the locals share his culture (i.e. mode of conlanging). He's not doing auxlang advocacy: he's not trying to persuade people to learn Ygyde as the universal first or second language; he's saying that for a certain design goal (which he failed to spell out explicitly), Ygyde comes up with a better solution than the other conlangs he's seen. (None of us agree with him about that, but that's not the point.) --And.
