Definitely false statement of fact! Esperanto was not the earliest
wasn't even close... of the constructed languages for international
use there were many many, incredibly many, years, decades even
centuries before Esperanto came on the scene. Volapuk was an
earlier quite successful in it's day auxlang. Why it's validity
as an auxlang should be questioned? I dunno... but I do know that
there are newer auxlang projects that have come on the scene
that showed a strong following, Ido of course, Latino sine Flexione
Interlingue Occidental and Novial, and Interlingua de IALA, etc.

So could you please change the paragraph on Esperanto?
Otherwise youre doing great! I'm really excited to get one of
the shirts when they come out and I applaud heartily all the
work you've put in! Kudos, kudos!
