  It was a fair summary of your position.  That you do not like it when you
  see what you do with other people's eyes does not make it "libel".

  Let me get this straight.  You think that Common Lisp needs to improve
  before it can be used for certain tasks, so you go use Python.  However,
  _other_ people should listen to your whining about how you had to choose
  Python for those tasks and spend the energy to improve Common Lisp --
  instead of just using Python like you did?

  The premises that would need to be added to this mess to make it appear
  to make sense are unfit for print.

  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.
