First, thank you for implementing and promoting this approach to collections.

I did see that link, because I liked the concept enough to read it all the way through without knowing Clojure, but that's not quite what I had in mind. You're right that most people have never heard of that library, which is why the way you presented it will leave most people with no idea that it was an influence (even if they read that far). That's something you could have just said, in one sentence, without getting into detail about how it was different.

I'm not really trying to criticize you for saying or not saying certain things, and I don't think you did anything wrong. Not really acknowledging influences is just a symptom of what turned me off. I feel like this post was written from a sort of aggressive fighting-for-popularity mindset that I'm uncomfortable with in a language.

EDIT: missing word
