This reads like a comedy sketch: just when you think you've seen the punch line, a character in an even more ridiculous costume runs onstage. It's incredibly entertaining. By the way: how many of these "-anto"s are "real" within IB? All of them? Just as importantly, are there any known "Pacificlones" like Henuanto? Benkarnell 21:26, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Hehe, quite! I intended to create this page for quite a long time now and finally got around to it! As for Henuanto: undoubtedly! ;)
As for how real these babies are... I don't know, really. We were just having an incredibly good time. IMO it's quite a good parody on the kind of flamewars that appear to happen on Auxlang constantly. Ill Bethisad undoubtedly has a lot of Euroclones of the -anto, -ino, -ido and -ial type. I'm even inclined to believe that some nuthead in the RTC might indeed have tried to create a Wenedyk-based auxlang. —IJzeren Jan Uszkiełtu? 21:35, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

The Laws

Lest I break them, can you explain about Godwin's Law and Throckmorton's Law? BoArthur 22:17, 6 August 2008 (UTC)

Godwin's Law: "As a Usenet discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches one."
Throckmorton's Law: "As discussion of an IAL progresses, the liklihood that the auxlanger will both extol his own auxlang while simultaneously bashing all others approaches one."
The latter is simply a Conlang specific restatement of the former.
