I’ll save you some time and trouble, because I’d learned to stop arguing with people who hold this opinion:
“WELL ACKSHUALLY” (push glasses up) “THE LISP MACHINES WERE MICROCODED WHICH MEANS THERE IS NO REAL LISP MACHINE, THE UNDERLYING MICROENGINE IS THE REAL PROCESSOR, AND IT DOES NOT RUN LISP, SO LISP MACHINES DID NOT EXIST.”
They then move the goalposts around regarding what is considered a REAL PROCESSOR and what is not until you give up and they “win” by default.
I will now go back to refusing to talk about or work on lisp projects anymore because The Community has beaten any will to do so out of me.
