{ 20040630, 0222 | Philippe Caquant } "I had a look and thought nearly
the same. This is very much like Esperanto. What seems interesting is
that the special letters used in Esperanto are not in use here. But
this is also the case in Ido. So the question is: why reinvent the
wheel, instead of using and improving what already exists ? Except for
fun, of course, which would be quite an understandable motivation."

there is some great irony in that we have a very appropriate but highly
amusing opinion of invented languages: "well, if you do it for
AMUSEMENT, for a HOBBY, it's valid. but try to be serious and WHAM! you

note i emphasise this policy is very appropriate - i would argue
*crucial* - but still... we've got some seriously ironic situations
going on there.
