- Doesn't "Ob" as in "ObConlang" stand for "Obligatory on-topic comment, because after all the list is supposed to be about..." ? So wouldn't "ObsemiOT" or "ObOffTopic" or anything else that isn't "ObConlang" be self-contradictory? Could this be a shift in meaning for the prefix? -Stephen (Steg) "oom."
