My list above wasn't meant to be exclusive, it was just some of the
Lisps I used in the past and which were once discussed here. None of
them had a separate newsgroup devoted to them and so comp.lang.lisp
was a natural place to discuss them. Depending on exactly what the
issue was with Autolisp then comp.cad.autocad may or may not be a
better place to discuss it. If it was something generically Lispy
then comp.lang.lisp seems fine to me -- though perhaps not to others
given the warning in the FAQ.
