|   Blake,

|   is where it is, don't you think?

the problem with you two guys is that you are much too willing to attribute
individual opinions (first your interaction with the volunteer maintainers
of the freely available Lisp environments GCL and CLISP, and now mine) as
that of a whole community of people, even to the point of faulting a
purported "community" for your dislike of opinions that are expressed a
decade after the fact.  your stupidity is offensive, and anything you might
"sum up" is unlikely to do anything but "support" your prejudice.
