I'm for Occidental and I've considered using it myself. I've decided against
it so far though because the community is so small which means that
eventually a new student is going to encounter Bob and he doesn't promote
the language the way it should be. Sometimes he'll go off on a tangent about
how Occidental isn't so much a language as a method of internationalizing
the vocabulary you already know, but really it's a language and you have to
learn it like any other. It's very good though. I consider you and Steve to
be the two best proponents of the language.

Bob, I hope you don't mind. It's not a personal attack - I really think you
promote Occidental better when you chill. The times where you just write up
article after article are the times that I feel most inclined to use it.
I've even written a few articles on the occ Wikipedia when nobody was

I've actually considering creating a site in Occ that has nothing about the
auxlang community whatsoever, just a few links to learn the language for
those that don't know it and the rest of the content to be about pretty much
anything else.
