Lingua Franca Nova article

I am not promoting LFN anymore owing to issues with its small community being infiltrated by reactionaries, as can be seen at its Wikipedia, where a user who has written an article about “Cultural Marxism” in bad faith is currently a sysop. Their original article on the subject was pushing an antisemitic conspiracy theory about the Frankfurt School, and their current article treats the antisemitic conspiracy theory as having equal validity as verifiable reality. What’s more, they have abused their administrative powers to protect the article, which, at such a tiny Wiki as LFN’s Wikipedia, makes it nearly impossible for all but a few users to edit, and was not done in response to any vandalism.

Until these issues with its very small community get sorted out, I cannot, in good faith, continue to argue that it is an “LGBT-inclusive romlang.” Quite the opposite is true; there are people with power and social capital in its community who want to see LGBT people dead. I would also be cautious about romlang communities in general, as there seem to be no small number of reactionaries who learn these languages due to their “Westernness,” due to the fact that they were not created by a Jew like Zamenhof, and/or due to them not pushing a “globalist” ideology. I have seen such people in the Interlingua community as well, though they are not dominant.
