If I am going to take you to task for overbroad claims, I feel some responsibility as well to point out when you are being too modest. Your second sentence quoted above is an understatement to a significant degree.

As an aside, I can say from a fair bit of experience that LISPers and Relational folk are among the most ornery around. However when one is debating with a LISPer one at least has the benefit of knowing one is likely arguing with a worthy opponent.
