        This week's poll is brought to you by Sally Caves, who asked: "How many of
you have invented a rich vocabulary of naughty words and erotica in your
Conlang?  In other words, how transgressive are we in our imaginary
languages?  You would think this medium would be perfect for the secret
insult, the private love-message, the erotic description that no one else
can understand."
        A. My conlanging is as pure as the driven snow.
        B. I play around with some sexual or scatalogical material but I am generally
        C. I have some marvelous obscenities that I would prefer not to share with
the group!
        D. Not only do I have naughty language, I write erotica in my Conlang with
astonishing eloquence!
        E. I'm a porn fiend in my conlang!

        No examples required. :)
