Your suspicions are wrong.

   Anyway, we've already had this flame war.

I did not subscribe to this site at that time.  I did not propose to
change the default back, so I was not trying to rediscuss something on
which a decision had already been made.

It is sad that people tend to start flaming when other people point
out the fact that they are different from the majority in one respect
or the other, and that they refuse to believe it and start suspecting
all kinds of ulterior motives, even after several other people point out
that same thing.  Why is the fact that other people are different in
some respects so hard to swallow (or believe)?

There are at least two other people on this list who have said that their
reactions to a blinking cursor are similar to mine.
