Yeah, but how many people read 'em? I know I did, but I doubt a lot of
people would... Although maybe there's some correlation between
conlanging and reading introductory emails and whatnot, I dunno.

Yeah? Well I hate dogs. Cats are much nicer. So long as you give them
the occasional attention, let them in and out of the house when they
want it, and ensure that there's food available, they're happy. But
dogs! Gah! Dogs go around barking everyone to death, and when they
aren't doing that, they're causing you to fall over and have a chip
knocked out of your tooth so that your front left incisor's face is
actually the same stuff that fillings are made out of. And do you know
what I have to say about *dogpeople*?! Argh! The lowest of the low. I
mean, honestly, who in their right mind could be a dogperson? I suggest
every dogperson join the Foreign Legion and get themself a new identify!
Oh, and cats will quite happily sit on your lap and give you company,
but a dog would never do that. What good's a dog? A child who never
grows up? Fools...
Tristan (has nothing against dogs or dogpeople. He'd just choose a cat
over a dog as his own pet) (oh, and someone had better reply dissing
cats and catpeople, because otherwise it won't be a flamewar and
Christophe would be right!)
