At this point, i really dont care if we lose Cheng Zhong or not. I told cheng three times to stop sending me email and to reply ONLY to myself. Cheng HAD to have consciously put a reply to the list of people spammed in the replies to emails that i wanted to keep off list (to avoid friction with other list members). It's one thing if they had responded in kind to my post in private, but ignoring my requests only proved to me that Cheng Zhong isnt trying to be nice, or find a place on the list, but to cause trouble. It's just my humble opinion of course. If cheng was having problems subscribing, then cheng should have asked someone privately how to do it (the list manager), NOT picking a group of random people and continually emailing them despite requests to be taken off of cheng's list. >QAFT i am aware that in the case that Lu >Su were inferring that an auxlang should not feature a >mandatory plural affix, then he/she should rather develop >this topic on AUXLANG --does that list still exist btw? Cheng was told several times what conlang was for, that it was for discussing grammar, phonology, aesthetics, etc. NOT for discussing the merits/disadvantages of one language or another. Cheng Zhong was doing JUST that, discussing why english plural s was bad, or confusing. Cheng also hinted at auxlangs. Therefore, cheng belongs on AUXLANG, *not* CONLANG. And yes, Auxlang still exists.
