That is not the case. I was a frequenter of the site in happier days, and am in a position to assure you of Ms. Gunn's legitimacy. She is who and what she claims to be, though I had no idea that she harbored such an animus against conlangs and conlanging, a fact made more remarkable that (in said happier days) the site actually hosted a Klingon poem, though not (to be sure) by Ms. Gunn. I suspect, though I have no knowledge of it, that the animus is in fact coterminous with the removal of that poem: guilt by association, as it were.
