  I disagree.  Among the remaining Lisps, it is the best thing ever.  Those
  who have thought otherwise, have left for other pastures, like D*lan and
  Scheme and Arc.  There are not "better" than Common Lisp by a long shot.

  No, they don't.  They spend some time rejecting the Scheme propaganda.  I
  think you need to pay attention to who is arguing for and against things.

  That is because they post it here!  Christ, are you trolling or what?

  In a fight for something, the fight is a loss, victory merely relief.
