  well, you find of people here who think Lisp is a bad language, and it's
  a problem that they can't leave Lisp alone, but have to post lots of
  inappropriate drivel.  I think you're mistaking a language newsgroup for
  an .advocacy newsgroup, but that may be easy to explain: c.l.l.advocacy
  doesn't exist, so some people think this is where they should do that
  kind of stuff, but it is very seldom that you see people talk about such
  things until somebody comes along and makes incorrect or unsupported
  negative claims about Lisp.  since this happens with alarming frequency,
  you might be confused about the newsgroup dynamics.
