Look, Padraic,
As artlangs go, I thing Solresol is a beautiful
language... Volapuk, despite the name is
quite nice for my  taste-lang-buds... also
Neo (Arturo Alfandari's) is simple and
beautiful... these are major works of art
But... I see your point...Sooooo, I'm
hereby declaring myself a Volapuk
Resurrectionist and a Solresol revivalist
and submiting these two as proxy for
their original authors... soooo let's see
how silly is this going to get...

Just do me a favor... humor the auxlangs
there's not that many... just include these
four Volapuk, Esperanto, Interlingua, and Solresol.
and I'm happy... no more gruff from me...
I'm even willing to sacrifice Ekspreso...
But for this... some of you antiaux-artlangers
better come up with goodies to fill the void. ;-)
So how about it?

Jay B.
