Don't be. If we were all embarrassed, neither this list nor lojban
itself would exist.

Me too. See the other post where I replied to lojbab's letter.
Anyway, I was and still am the only lojban learner in my country.

I don't know. I found the brochure, lojban with examples (lojex) and
draft lessons very easy. Refgrammar is harder, and dedicated to the
dedicated, but lojex is exactly that: an intro material designed to the
people that do not yet know if they will learn lojban seriously.

Yes. I try to get my friends to learn with me, and those few that are
interested don't have the time.

This is absolutely not too long, nor is it out-of-subject. We are here
to discuss anything related to lojban. Well, lojban list is certainly
related to lojban, and the more so good suggestions we get into public,
the better. Thank you for coming out of the closet, hope to stay with
