What about "first thing" did you not understand?  Isn't "first thing"
just a teensy weensy bit different from "only thing"?  And what you
wrote in reply was:

Where did I write or even imply that Emacs should be restarted
whenever we need to edit a file?  Where did I imply that when there is
nothing to edit there is not need to have Emacs running?

And you complain about me "shouting vociferously" when you put such
nonsense into my mouth and chastize me vociferously as putting forward
"preposterously wrong arguments" you invented yourself and attributed
to me?

As I said: there is enough room for disagreement about the things
actually being written.  No need to invent any of your own for me.
