Jesse is right. This illustrates once more how important it is to have adequate
headers above the messages we post.
As a rule, I try to read every message. But I also have a practical situation:
I don't have e-mail at home, so I have to do it at work. When I come back after
a few free days or a weekend, I usually find at least 200 e-mails in my box.
Because I am supposed to work here, I just don't have the time to read
everything. So I begin with deleting everything that seems less important to
read, including all the stuff about English.
For me, the huge number of non-conlang-related stuff is not a reason to go
nomail, though I do believe there has been a little too much of it, recently.
But don't be surprised if people don't react on a conlang subject embedded in a
non-conlang thread. I would be happy to comment on your (Jake's) language, but
you will have to repost it, as Jesse pointed out; unfortunately, I have already
delete the old text.
