I take this to mean that you want to shut the door on the Lisp
community and lock it, admitting no new users or new learners. If you
typify the Lisp community, I can understand why it's such a small and
ingrown community.

The small and ingrown Lisp community can certainly do without people
with master's degrees in CS who can't figure out the right way to pass
a command line argument to a Unix application.

Quality over quantity.
