Well, let's see. You accidentally deleted a file important to you, and
then sent an angry post to the mailing list. I'm suggesting what
happened was at least partially your fault, as you could have just
calmed down, restored from your backups, and gone on with your day.

Note that nothing in the above expresses an opinion as to whether
Emacs should delete using `rem' or by sending files to the Recycle
Bin. To be honest, I somewhat agree with you, I think Emacs' actions
should probably be reversible by default. The "Emacs didn't delete my
secure file" complaint isn't valid, I don't think, because if you're
deleting secure files, `dired-do-delete' as it stands still doesn't
properly delete them.
