| A while back someone suggested starting a comp.lang.lisp.advocacy group.
| Has anyone taken any action in that regard?

  why wait for someone else?  you are free to take action yourself, now.

| I seem to be killing more and more threads in this group.

  but why is that a problem?  are you dissatisfied with the articles that
  are left after killing threads?  are you dissatisfied with the fact that
  people routinely discuss issues _they_ think are relevant?  what if
  they're right?  that would mean you've missed something important.

  and how would people be educated to use your new .advocacy newsgroup?
  are they really involved in .advocacy-like discussions, as seen elsewhere?
