This has been his main activity on the auxlang newsgroups and mailing lists. He never posted any original ideas there... just barking and a little minutiae... Maybe he is a dog? There is progress in auxlanging, but it takes place outside of this mailing list. Oligosynthetic conlangs were unknown before 1935 (invention of Sona). Then aUI was invented in 1950. Now oligosynthetic conlangs are the fastest growing branch of auxlangs. In the past few years Ygyde, Kali-sise, Socialese, Dunia, and Ododu were invented. Toki Pona is also new and popular invention, but it is oligoisolating baby-talk rather than oligosynthetic auxlang.
