@meow: Man, the cost is too expensive, and the returns are dubious.

crocket03:02:36

I'd rather create new words.

crocket03:02:47

Can anyone mention me here?

meow04:02:25

Then we shall invent new words. And new worlds. And we shall be free.

meow04:02:08

I believe anyone can mention you here. Any member of this channel.

crocket05:02:45

Nobody says english is not suitable for speaking... so we can't justify nor afford research on new language and deployment of it on a large scale.

crocket05:02:17

Look at esperanto. It hasn't gained much traction among competitors.

meow05:02:19

I really meant a modified form of English.

meow05:02:36

We speak Jargon. We are Jargonians.

meow05:02:57

Welcome to Jargon.

@crocket mention simple_smile

crocket09:02:27

Your mention wasn't notified to me via email.

nha09:02:37

Ah. Good to know.

Clojurians reached almost 5000 users. It's probably going to be closed in 2 years.

meow10:02:05

@crocket: How did you determine that timeframe?

crocket11:02:33

In 2 years, it could probably reach 7000 users at which point slack could close any group.

meow11:02:04

@crocket: How did you arrive at the number 7000?

crocket11:02:19

How long has clojurians existed?

meow11:02:40

About 6 months or so.

crocket11:02:22

So, the user base could grow at 1,000 people / year.

crocket11:02:34

In 2 years, it's 2,000 people.

meow11:02:15

Slack could close us today - we are violating their TOS by archiving channel messages.

crocket11:02:49

Then, we should work harder on finding alternatives.

meow11:02:01

And #C0CB40N8K which has completely stalled.

@meow Is your nickname an imitation of the sound of cat?
