Hi Brent,

No, actually he said that I'd said Lisp was ONLY an academic language, 
but I said it was MORE of an academic language.  He totally ignored 
that, harped on some other issue, and showed circular reasoning.  He's 
gotten in a lot of trouble for being contrary (trolling and flaming) and 
that's only the time I've been here - a couple months.

Then he posts the MANUFACTURERS comments, not anything like independent 

I have a very thick skin, but little tolerance for stupidity.  Ignorance 
can be educated, but stupidty has no remedy.  Therefore I won't be privy 
to Russell's diatribes.

Also note that I said I am glad Carlos (and others) like Lisp - they can 
like it, but I offered my opinion about why Lisp doesn't succeed in 
major commercial ways.

And note that without Russell's input, things are actually fairly 
flame-free around here.  I responded to you no problem, as you seemed 
quite civil.
