Courtesy of lemonodor: Tim Converse on Lisp advocates.

I don't really believe that Lisp advocates aren't significantly worse than any other subculture that considers "you just don't get it" as a winning move in a debate (ok ok, I'm also a cyclist, a free software hacker, a linux user and a former amiga user, so hardly in a position to criticise), but the article is a good read nonetheless.

I will readily concede that the `solipsist' point is well-made, and in my defence offer that cirCLe was originally titled Play Nice With Unix. There is no need to be "to be any more isolationist than, say, Emacs is" after all.
