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.
