I'm not picking on your post specifically -- but why do we suddenly have a
language advocacy thread about Python and Lisp, with little or no relevance
to Erlang? It's not even an interesting discussion about the design of
Python or Lisp, just superficial opinions about syntax that everyone has
heard a dozen times before.

The erlang-questions list has been relatively free of advocacy threads. When
we do have them, they are about language concepts, or at the very least they
have some concrete relevance to Erlang. That's one reason I still read
erlang-questions after giving up on several other language mailing lists.
I hope it stays that way.
