  Maybe the problem is that perception creates reality?  Just the way your
  perception of me creates the reality you respond to me in out of thin
  air, maybe it _would_ help if you just shut up about all the negative
  stuff that seems to be dripping out of your mouth half involuntarily?

  My point in this thread has been that the impression people like you
  _love_ to create about Common Lisp is part of the reason it is having a
  hard time, and consequently, why you have a hard time with your manager.
  Just like another poster here, I think this is more personal than
  anything else -- you create your own reality as far as perceptions go,
  and the reality you create is one where Common Lisp has serious problems.
  That is not necessarily true.  If you tried to look at it differently,
  just as you could look at me differently, you would find something else.
  But somehow, I suspect that that is not in your personality, and we will
  just have to live with a insane rants about me and Common Lisp from you.

  Please consider it a service to the community and to yourself to just
  shut up, Erann Gat.
