No, I wasn't really away, and I followed some discussions here. Just
didn't feel like conlanging lately.

I'm happy that nobody of the list members seems to be directly
affected by what happened.

Those who may be affected indirectly, please accept my condolescences -
belated, but sincere.

And please forgive me for confining to this. It's unexpectedly difficult
to express my feelings without touching upon politics - an ugly thing to
realize. So please, don't reply, just forgive me for missing words.
