Why? Comments about auxlangs being "boring" and "simplistic"
is something I've heard from people in this list and I merely
reported the existence of that opinion among people here - which
I do not share but which I am not going to discuss because it's
useless to discuss personal tastes.

OTOH, saying that talking about (even mentioning!) auxlangs
has to be avoided because it will instantly start a flamewar
between the ones favourable to auxlangs and the ones opposing
them and between the ones favourable to one auxlang and the
ones favourable to another auxlang is like saying that the
topic of Tolkien languages has to be avoided because it
is going to start a flamewar between those who oppose any
"reconstruction" of those languages and the ones favourable.
Not to mention the feud between the ones who like naturalistic
conlangs and the ones who like "alienistic", engineered or
philosophical conlangs. If you don't like a particular topic
or a particular language, just skip the discussions dealing
with them; meanwhile, those truly interested may have a
productive interchange without being driven into a flamewar.

Cheers,
