| Except that nobody here has been saying that Common Lisp sucks.

  Your observational skills are so deficient that whatever you say about
  what people have or have not done is completely irrelevant by now.
  Besides, you are among the clueless naysayers who deride Common Lisp for
  flaws it does not have and who do not know how to do things properly, so
  you think features you do know about make the language hard to use.

  You also sprinkle your articles liberally with negative terminoloyg, like
  you just did about plists and alists.  "Unfortunately", my ass.

  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.
