Warm fuzzies

Factor seems to be getting a fair bit of exposure lately. I can tell because people have started posting uninformed commentaries. While Factor is not the main subject of that article, the author mentions a lot, and seems to argue that Haskell's referential transparency is good because stack languages and in particular Factor have no abstractions other than the stack (non-sequitur?) I replied to this post in the most polite way I could, but perhaps I should not have bothered. In any case, Factor doesn't even have 1% of the uninformed criticisms being written about it as Lisp, but progress is progress!

Slava, yes, it gets more and more exposure, and btw, you should update the version on the Wikipedia page (I cannot do that because some moron has blocked my IP for being an intermediate TOR relay).

I'm not behind the Wikipedia content concerning Factor...
