Look, I feel like I have to react to this.  Your quote clearly seems
to clearly suggest that I am just "offended" by the blinking cursor
for no other reason than that I am a dogmatic purist old-fashioned
Emacs user who uses nothing else.  I clearly said in previous postings
that the blinking cursor produced discomfort to me because of
neuro-physiological differences with what presumably is the majority
of people.  Suggesting that this is untrue and that I am instead
ideologically motivated is an attack on my personal moral integrity.
It implies that I am a liar, dishonest and untrustworthy.

People can disagree with me, but somehow I would have hoped that such
disagreement would not cause people to attack me personally and
question my moral integrity.
