Yes, I realize that. And my use was mischievous (please note the '>') and said in what I thought was a joking manner. I apologize if you took this comment more seriously than I intended; I was not implying that conlangers are a bunch of sociopaths -- if I thought that there was anything seriously amiss about conlanging, I would probably for my own sake steer clear of both this list and conlangs in general!
