Ke gredd eo:
The idea of Celticonlang list is nice, but it is public. Some of the
things that have been written here are rather more private than I think
ought be on a public forum. In other words, if I say something dumb or
perhaps get into a heated argument here, or make a semi-private
announcement of some sort, it stays here, amongst the eight of us. What
we've got here is a nice cozy place to muck about with the Brithenig
Universe; I'm not entirely certain I'd like to see that placed out into the
middle of a field for any Jocko-me-lad to stop by and stare at.
Note that I like the idea of a Celticonlang list as an open forum, like
Conlang, where we can troll the deeper waters for ideas and criticisms;
but I doubt the wisdom of throwing aside what we've got here.
I suppose that counts as a vote _for_ commandeering Celticonlang, for its
purposes; but _against_ scuttling the current forum.
