  why do you assume I do?  what the hell does public disclosure of earnings
  figures have to with statements like "they are generating more business"?

  do you _want_ to give the impression that Lisp is failing and people who
  say they are generating more business are lying because you can't verify
  it through public earnings earnings figures, or does it just look that
  way?  considering your attitude, your signature quote has added meaning.
