Ooooo.  Please show your research that led to that conclusion.

Just how did you measure the feelings and reactions of our
newbie population?  Did you poll newbie Emacs users, for
example?  What were the results?  How did you analyze them?

How did you compare the feelings of weirdness and
offputtingness our newbies expressed about `...' with those
they expressed about other aspects of Emacs, and about Emacs
in general?  How does their reaction to `...' compare with
their reaction to `M-x', `C-u C-x =', Lisp, and all the rest?

Where's the beef?
