15:24 masak another quick partial update:
15:25 masak (a) I'm completely fine with calling `quasi` something less confusing to poor Lisp people. the person with the obviously superior suggestion for a better keyword will win a small, entirely irrelevant prize.
15:26 masak (b) I'm also eager to replace `{{{ }}}` syntax with something less grating. but I'm not holding out hope for that one, and I refuse to be blocked by the lack of a better alternative.
15:29 masak (c) all variants of "it's not actually quasiquoting" on this channel will be considered Bad Form from now on. I won't police the channel (unless people are actually trolls and not just trying to impose Lisp values), but consider the criticism about lexical scoping, quasi, interpolation etc very much taken to heart, processed, and hence Boring
15:31 masak (d) do be aware that despite the criticisms in (c), there is a status quo that's very much entrenched and unchallenged. I truly believe that I am open-minded and willing to listen to ways to improve on it. the main challenge here is one of language/terminology. please help break those barriers.
15:31 masak that's all for now.
