 Lisp is sin

Never written in lisp. Spent a few days playing around with the elisp (lisp language for emacs) but never really did anything with it.

"I have a love/hate relationship with Lisp and Scheme. Over the last 2 years, I've tried to convince myself to move to Lisp and Scheme away from Python as my primary language for doing 'fun stuff'. However, every time I have done so, I've run into blockers - almost always the same ones the reddit.com folks ran into - the lack of libraries which work across Lisp implementations (though the Lisp folks are working on fixing some of the issues - issues like the one mentioned in the last para here)."
