I have gave reasons that asking someone else to do something involves
issues of social relation. I gave the example of standing on the
street and asking people for money. The time and energy, to go to the
street and open your mouth, is perhaps 10 minunes or 10 calories. But
it has ramifications on you, regardless whether you got the money or
not.

Please don't just pick parts of post.

Maybe you are doing it just to annoy me? Don't. The joke is rather
old.

Vote for me then.

In emacs, pull the menu “Help‣Send Bug Report...”, and write to them
that M-‹key› notation is a usability problem.
