   So as far as some new users come from time to time, there is no need to
   question Emacs' design. Curious logic. We'll better leave the discussion

If the argument is that users are "repelled" from emacs because of the
current bindings, and it is shown that this is simply not true, then
yes, one should kill the discussion on that specific point.  

People are making absurd claims, and refuse to listen and it is
getting tiresome.
