This is one of a number of accepted papers for a conference on History of Programming Language. It does a good job of telling the story of the history of Emacs Lisp. Publicly proclaiming that you are critical of it for doing that is rather unreasonable.


OP didn't say it was a bad paper. The criticism is that it wasn't something that lived up to its title. It's hardly unreasonable to point that out.
