    Yep, I was interested in Glosa for some years. But I found out
that most Glosalists are rather hardcore auxlangers & tend to take a very dim
view of "lingua-mangling" much less Pidgin (all my correspondence
with Glosalists regarding Pidgin languages tended to be rather
negative... )
    As it has been pointed out, auxlangers tend to think with a bit of an
authoritarian streak. And no wonder there are some many schisms
in all the various major IAL camps (i.e. Esperanto, Novial, Loglan,
etc. Glosa... ad infinitum).

    more fun to "lingua-mangle" =)
    [perhaps in Synthrax: "lingua-fracti"?  kinda nice to have both
connotations of "fracturing" & fractals/chaos implied  =)  ]
