  Well, Franz Lisp is extinct, and the newsgroup is basically dead.  Stuff
  that is clearly about Macintosh Common Lisp should definitely go in their
  own newsgroup.

  Incidentally, have you seen Sam Steingold answer _every_ question about
  CLISP with a suggestion to use the CLISP mailing list?  This is OK with
  you, but keeping your D*lan propaganda to comp.lang.dylan is not.  Why?

  I think you are nuts.

  In a fight against something, the fight has value, victory has none.
  In a fight for something, the fight is a loss, victory merely relief.
