I know that when someone has the temerity to say "Gosh, I wish Emacs could do X", they're generally met instantaneously with howls of derision by a teeming horde of "Ask me about my Aspergers!"-shirt-wearing neckbeards who let them know:
  • Anyone who would want to do such a thing is an idiot.
  • Doing $INSANELY_COMPLICATED_ALTERNATIVE is much better as any idiot knows.
... it's a million times funnier when that person saying "Gosh, I wish..." is Richard M. Stallman.
