I don't know whether I can ;-) - Just back from holiday and trying to catch up, and anything that's longer than, say, 50 lines (which is the size of my xterm), gets zapped pretty quickly. However, some things just don't seem to get picked up, while others do. I've found that extensive grammatical descriptions or long vocabulary lists (like my grottochronology of Denden and several other conlangs) do better on webpages, while more focussed topics and pointed questions do well on the list. Long pieces have a somewhat 'finished' appearance, which doesn't invite much comment. Boudewijn Rempt |
