| What *you* have missed, is that some of those exact same brightest minds
| to ever touch a keyboard went from Common Lisp to design a new language
| and did a few things differently the second time around.

  But they designed a new language and set up a new community for it!  They
  did _not_ hang around in the Common Lisp community and whine about it.

| Are you saying that you're brighter than Moon?

  Please think about what you are _actually_ saying.

  The past is not more important than the future, despite what your culture
  has taught you.  Your future observations, conclusions, and beliefs are
  more important to you than those in your past ever will be.  The world is
  changing so fast the balance between the past and the future has shifted.
