That's the best spoof of clueless Lisp advocacy I've ever seen. The profound ignorance about every non-Lisp technical topic, the irrelevant references to random facts about biology, and the incoherent deification of one's own preferences as objectively correct are just superb.
In fact, it was such a good spoof that I wasn't sure it was a spoof until I read the footnotes. I'm sure poor Xach will get a lot of flames from people who thought he was serious.

It's specifically a Paul graham parody (and a brilliantly funny one too) - though I admit that even with the visual page style clues I didn't catch on until he mentioned Arc.
wow, that jroller one is pretty offensive, sounds like the guy probably writes a political blog calling for the execution of opponents on the side.
Apologies - I suffered poster's regret almost immediately. I actually like Mr. Graham's two lisp books so I can't say I agree with all the venom directed at him there. It's so outrageous though that it made me laugh. Most of the bile on the bileblog appears reserved for java numbskulls.
