  in all my years on USENET, I have seen a lot of destructive idiots post
  their favorite drivel in the guise of facts, and some even manage to look
  like they have a clue, but I cannot recall anyone quite so destructive or
  quite so willing to lie and misrepresent as Dobes Vandermeer of the aptly
  named MINDLESS.COM.  _nothing_ he says is true or even relevant to what
  Lisp can offer today or why this offer is not widely accepted.

  Lisp does have a problem: it doesn't come with a big enough stick with
  which to hit the ignorant fucks so they get out of their retarded state.
