Just because you happen to not like the fact that we agree with someone 
(and don't feel the need to explain why because they already did so for 
me) does not give you the right to act like a a two year old and whine 
about how *some* people actually agree every once in a while.

And while we're on the subject of whining about 'not justifying' your 
position, all I have seen you do is describe context-sensitive menus by 
using the derisive term 'mystery meat' without giving a clear explanation 
of *WHY* you don't think it's a good idea. ("Because" is not sufficient)

My opinion with regard to context sensitive menus is that they *CAN* be 
way overused but, when used properly, can save you a lot of time. Overuse 
of context sensitive menus is the fault of the DEVELOPER. Just because 
gnustep apps *CAN* have four billion Toolbar buttons doesn't mean they 
will, because the design philosophy WRT GNUstep is different.
