I think there are degrees in how dead a language is.
Perhaps, but does it really matter to anyone other than an academic?
It matters to anybody interested in social sciences, does not it?
Anybody?  No.  I would say that, at best, it matters to people interested in studying and/or preserving dead or extinct languages.  That would be a rather small subset of social science.
Science is what happens when preconception meets verification.

It matters to anthropologists, archaeologists, economists, human geographers, linguists, mathematicians, management scientists, media academics, political scientists, psychologists, and historians?

I mean, linguists and maybe human geographers, sure.

Well, it seems to interest many people, as I got 150 upvotes this night on this Reddit post, more than for any post all the time: https://www.reddit.com/r/ancientrome/comments/mor62e/how_would_you_say_the_etruscan_language_died_two/

Congrats I guess. I'm not sure what upvotes gets you. Seems that no one really cares to comment though. Does anyone really care about what you think some dead letters/words mean other than poking an up arrow because you were able to paste an Etruscan glyph font?

Well, you are right that I do not know for sure why people there are upvoting my post. However, from the few comments I received, they seem to imply they think I am right.

You posted something of interest on a niche subreddit and a few people bothered to upvote it, i.e., give you fake internet points after probably just reading the title?

Cool?

I think that, had they just read the title, they would have probably downvoted my question as a low-effort one, thinking I do not understand how little we know about the Etruscan language.

Which comments seem to think you are right? One person wrote "superb" and you didn't even know what that word meant? Strange.

What does that mean? "Commentarius" in Latin means memorandum, right? Should he have issued a memorandum?

Perhaps even a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) designating a bilateral agreement between the two parties (Author & Memo'er) that his post was, indeed, superbus, i.e., arrogant, and without merit.
