Who will?

What would be the reason for providing such a feature?  (Yes, I've
read that discussion; no, I don't see why the user wanted this.)

If you dwell a lot on those sites, how about encouraging people to use
the Emacs forums, where they will get definitive answers, instead of
talking to random people (present company excluded) on Stack-foo?  I
cannot for the life of me figure out why these sites are so popular,
given that Emacs has such a helpful community and such a good
documentation.  Fashion and bad habits are the only explanations I
came up with.
