Well... I am new to the list as well as to emacs. (Just one year
old.) So, what are "fringes"?
(9) I will not include a self-destruct mechanism unless absolutely
necessary. If it is necessary, it will not be a large red button
labelled "Danger: Do Not Push". The big red button marked "Do Not
Push" will instead trigger a spray of bullets on anyone stupid
enough to disregard it. Similarly, the ON/OFF switch will not
clearly be labelled as such. - Peter Anspach in "The Top 100 Things
