In the interest of staying on topic, I will not be discussing web site
promotion techniques or personal literature preferences on this list. My
intention is not to draw any other attention to Newspeak than what is
required in order to have a tag registered for it.

Since it is obvious that Newspeak has existed for 50+ years as a variant of
English - a variant with a grammar specific enough to cause ambiguity if not
tagged - I find it very difficult to understand why the request for its
registration should be rejected.
