I remember those pre-internet days...lovingly dog-eared notebooks filled
with fading lines of pencilled-in and scratched-out phonologies and verb
inflections, wondering if I were the only conlanger in the world besides
Tolkien and Ursula LeGuin....
It's a shame that this list has gone so far downhill in such a short time.
I only joined exactly one year ago, and actually recall reading thread
after thread about...conlanging! (believe it or not).... Seems like such
threads are few and far between now...that's why I've been in digest mode
for months. Back to the pencilled notebooks for me I guess....
