Just because of the appalling untruth to this one, I thought I'd
better just point out what should be obvious to anyone that looks into
it even a little bit: there is only one R6RS editor who is a PLT
insider (Matthew Flatt), and even he was after a Scheme standard for
all Schemes that want progress. The other editors, I presume, would be
justifiably annoyed at such claims, since they are not PLT insiders at

I generally think of this mailing list as a friendly place, and I hope
the remainder of this thread bears that out, but please do try to do a
little bit of fact checking to make sure you do not repeat nonsense
(flame bait, even).
