It’s super frustrating to get half way through reading an article only to find out that it’s about Scheme or some dialect of LISP that it not Clojure. Feels like a waste of my time.
If we’re going to keep using the lisp tag for Cloure posts can we switch to using the Fortran tag for all other languages?
Remember the tags are a means to an end. How many people are interested in Clojure articles and not interested in other articles with the lisp tag? How many people want to hide one and not the other? Whereas e.g. I hide articles about go becasue they annoy me, but wouldn’t want to hide articles about other algol-family languages.
At least two.
Clojure is different enough from the other lisps that I usually don’t waste time reading articles about it.
It wasn’t until I saw a link to a post that had Clojure in the title that I realised the lisp tag was being used for Clojure and not just Common Lisp. Common lisp isn’t really of interest to me and so I expect I’ve skipped over plenty of posts that would’ve actually been quite relevant to my interests. I’m in favour of introducing a Clojure tag to avoid this confusion.
This was my response. I’m more inclined to look at a Clojure post than a Lisp post. I’d like to see this tag as well.
