| Once again, the point is that an array is not a value, it's a list
| of variables!  And these variables are not constant.

  How young were when you arrived at the conclusion that you know
  best and that listening to other people is a waste of your time?

| And concerning the immutability of the specifications, it just
| means that lisp is supple enough a language to let it's programmers
| ignore awkward parts of the specifications and write their own
| "patches", each and every one of us.

  While you may believe that you have judged the standard and the
  language and the community of users, you have instead given the
  whole entire world a solid reason to judge you.

  Now that you have demonstrated that you believe that knowledge can
  be acquired without effort, how do you write programs?  With a tap
  of your magic wand, the computer just does what you want, right?
