That is not the case. I was a frequenter of the egt.ie 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 egt.ie 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.

I have written a private protest to the other list owners.
