On the contrary, trolling is a vital art that rejuvenates public life.
This guy's sin is that he is not skilled at his art. A troll who elicits
pity instead of anger is like a comedian who isn't funny. For all this
work, we deserve better.

On to the response:

 > They were brave, they broke with tradition and bureaucratic voting of
features and did something revolutionary!

That description fits several of the Scheme implementations we already
have, most especially Racket.

Racket

include all possible and impossible SRFIs,

Racket

most users, just as Turbo Pascal was better than all the competition.

Racket

 > Such Scheme implementation would conquer the scheme world

They want you as a new recruit: https://racket-lang.org/common-plt-app.html

 > I'd be happy, and willing to pay, if there was an implementation of
Scheme that was today's equivalent of what Borland Turbo Pascal was back
in the day!

If only PC-SCHEME for MS-DOS still ran. Wait, it does.

 > But the main problem with Chez Scheme is that it has no owner, it
belongs to nobody. No one is responsible for it and no one cares too much.

The "Fork" button is right there.

 > various bureaucratic Scheme committees

Nothing in Scheme is hampered by bureaucracy.

SRFI is entirely free of buraucracy. Not a committee in sight.

RnRS is not hampered by bureaucracy, but by scope.

To everyone else, I recommend
https://www.tfeb.org/fragments/2021/11/22/the-endless-droning/ for a
Lisp perspective. And to everyone who can stand millennial culture,
Eminem's "The Fall" as a recent example of how a man responds to trolls.
