  But why would anyone do that if you keep posting your hatred for Lisp and
  denigrate the language, its suppliers, its users, those who do love the
  language, and almost everything else related to Common Lisp?

  I actually believe you may be just so dense that you do not understand
  the connection, probably because of your dismal life experiences and your
  interaction with your managers in particular.  There sure seems to be
  same core problem with you as with other negativists: They fail to get
  over their negative experiences, but keep them in the forefront of their
  mind.  You sure have a hangup bordering on a mental illness when it comes
  to your reactions to anything I say.  _Normal_ people get over things.
  Nutcases do not.  It is one of the important point of distinction.
