Nah, it is also mentioned in the League Of Nations survey, in the sentence: "Oh
yes, there is also a small insignificant auxlang called Jovianto, but nothing
worth mentioning."

Ha, wine! Nothing compared to Venedic beer! The only potential use for wine in
the RTC is for calming down the baby!

Now that sounds like a sympathetic auxlang! Venedikanto Omniversala Supernova
and Venedikanto Intermondiala Superlatinova are exactly like that, only better!
We favour democracy too, and normally we keep ourselves far from discussion
about which auxlang is better or worse. We simply stand above auxlang policies.

> It doesn't claim to be the best IAL ever.

Nor does VIS. That's what makes it even more perfect!

Ah, I get the picture: Doktoro Gasiro is democratically elected as president
and sole council member by an assembly that consists of one participant,
Doktoro Gasiro! 1-0 for democracy! Look, it seems you have good ideas. Why
don't you give up on your pointless experiment and join the glorious
Venedikanto OS movement? We will happily forgive you your youth sin.

Well, that is probably going to change as soon as someome actually decides to
join the Narbonido movement.

Yes, these Kemrese infiltrants are highly irreliable, indeed! Good for us, bad
for the Kernopeantos.

That sounds wonderful! Venedino and its descendents are all about tolerance and
mutual respect too. You really should join our ranks!

My point exactly! As I said, Venedikanto's spiritual level is far beyond
auxlang politics, and so, we don't engage in pointless discussions.
