  Why is it important to you to argue against this?  Did I somehow fail to make
  it clear that it applied to /many/ people, as opposed to /all/ that would
  make it legitimate to object?  Do you have any new information other than
  what we already know?  What do you wish to accomplish with your posts?

| What it doesn't have, unfortunately, is a syntax I can live with.

  So write your own parser that produces s-expressions.  But you have not even
  tried to adapt to the language or adapt it to yourself, have you?  Why is it
  so important to you write about your unhappiness with both languages and
  other people's opinions and statements?  Perhaps you should try to find
  something you /can/ live with if you are so unhappy with Lisp and this forum?

Act from reason, and failure makes you rethink and study harder.
Act from faith, and failure makes you blame someone and push harder.
