I profoundly disagree.  Unity is important to me, and that means that all
(I use the term in the broadest sense) should be represented here.  The AUXLANG
mailing list is specifically for auxlang *advocacy*; its existence does not mean
that auxlangs cannot be discussed and developed here.

Oh, certainly.  I may have misthunk when I said "general principles".  What I
meant was for the discussions that form maybe a half or two thirds of this list
(website updates, tech, theory, tan, terminology, usage, help, most of the
"general purpose" offs) should stay here, and the discussion of things specific
to individual artlangs or artlangs in general (and associated topics, such as
relays) could move to an artlang list.  As stated, I'd still read and post in
both, but the distinction is probably useful.

Thanks, John.  I'll sign up later today, but intend to remain cloaked for as
