Do your reading before spewing nonsense:


(and this is /only/ Common Lisp. There's Racket, Guile and the new
kid on the block, Clojure, each one with its own, quite interesting
projects -- check out Guix for Guile's current hot-spot).

Sorry, that sounds harsh, but that's how fake news are born. You've got
the tendency to state things as if they were true: then you've got the
damned duty to do some research before.
