  Let's _quote_ from some of Michael T. Richter's eloquence on display
  for all the world to see (well, that part of the world which thinks
  Dylan is all the world, anyway):

  In <6Qi85.18115$>, Michael
  T. Richter <>, presumably the same _gentleman_, writes:

  "Hey fuckhead"

  Granted, it's two words and three syllables, which could imply that
  Michael T. Richter is anywhere between 50% and 100% more cogent than
  Dave Bakhash's "bogus", but since the first word is but a noise word
  to get attention, it isn't worth anything at all, which means we're
  dealing with a neanderthal who is very envious of humans.   Worse,
  yet, "bogus" is _way_ more cogent than "fuckhead", but then again,
  Dave is a Lisp user and Michael is a Dylan user, and we know what
  kind of people _they_ are: ...

| Yes, Lisp has its advantages.  Readability isn't one of them.

  ... hostile, illiterate bums who hate their parens, as this new
  evidence of eloquence and cogency shows so clearly.

  If this is not what you expected, please alter your expectations.
