I posted this because I don't much like the opinion people at the New York Times. You can deduce what you want from that, but bragging about "purity" wasn't what I posted this for.

I get the significance of the "@", but is the "v" also important here?

am i able to question you without losing my woman card because i gotta say i really do need this card

I wonder what the intersection is between people interested in tabletop games and people interested in conlanging. Hopefully enough that this game gets successful.

I signed up for a Steam account sometime in 2012. Apparently I've spent 9% of my life since then playing games on there. That's all hours, not waking hours.

Probably not the best thing, right?

I'm dual enrolling in some classes at a community college this year. Today was the first day of those, and it went pretty well. Still losing weight, too. Feels good.

As far as I know, most of the changes from Classical to Koine Greek were phonological. Like you said, that doesn't matter so much if you don't need to speak it.

No, that's not what it means at all. They aren't arguing there in that section that all dialects are separate, they're saying that "dialect" and "language" are classificatory terms that aren't inherently judging. That's why they go on to explain how nationalism can influence that classification. You yourself could make the argument that all varieties of a language count as separate languages, but the article I posted does not.
