Bla bla.

If I have a Scheme question, I use comp.lang.scheme.
If I have a Logo question, I use comp.lang.logo.
If I have an Emacs question, I use one of the
multitude of Emacs newsgroups.

Comp.lang.lisp is mostly used for general Lisp discussion.
Specific questions about implementations and their usage
are best asked on their mailing lists or their newsgroups.
Newbies may not know the right place to ask, so
they often get the pointer to the right place.

comp.lang.lisp  is not about customizing GNU Emacs.

If you want to post about customizing Emacs,
do it in an Emacs newsgroup. All the stuff
you have posted is Emacs specific and not of
general interest (image tags in Emacs).
GNU Emacs has a special Lisp dialect for customization
and its own libraries.

If you want to post about a GENERAL Lisp topic (which might
include questions about all Lisp dialects), post in
comp.lang.lisp . But, best post to the most
specific newsgroup to get the most qualified answer.

Your own postings about customizing Emacs are a typical
example for an unwanted cross-posting. Please stop
that. They may be useful for Emacs users, but there
is little general Lisp content.

Should every comp.lang.logo post be cross-posted to comp.lang.lisp,
just because Logo is a Lisp dialect? I'd hope not.
