You're insane.

I should say _that_ would be an unsubstantiated claim.

What does your classic unsubstantiated and erroneous claim have to do with Lisp, Kastrup?

Though being insane might have something to do with Lisp.

What does your classic unsubstantiated and erroneous claim have to do with Lisp, Kastrup? It is well known that it is all-caps languages like COBOL and BASIC that cause brain damage, Kastrup.

I do this for work I do quite by myself (like theses and articles).

How odd.

Not at all.

Makes it much easier to keep track of work you do.

What does your classic unsubstantiated and erroneous claim have to do
with Lisp, Kastrup? Using version control software entails a lot of
complex use of command-line tools to check out, copy, and check in
files, Kastrup,

That's why one uses a Lisp-based editor with version-control support
called Emacs to do the hard work.

What does your classic unsubstantiated and erroneous claim have to do with Lisp, Kastrup? Using emacs entails even more complexity and difficulty, with even steeper learning curves, than using version control tools, Kastrup.

and that's after scaling the software's learning curve. This hardly
seems likely to be "much easier" than just using a word processor like
normal folk, Kastrup.

Your discussion style (or rather your apodictic statement style) does
not suggest that you would be able to speak for normal folk with
authority.
