Yes, we are.  And I'm adding <delete> to the discussion, which is typically
mapped to C-d.

I see.  Where/when was that decided?

That's too bad.  C-d and <delete> should just delete the next char.

Anything I say you might consider irrelevant, whether I agree or disagree with
you.  That's your right.  I still voice my agreement or disagreement.

Voicing disagreement to your decisions is often ineffectual in terms of getting
you to reconsider, it is true.  That is not a reason to keep silent when a
choice is bad.
