That was quite uncalled for, and fully unjustified.

Emacs is usable at a naive level[*], it is well documented, and it is
robust.  It does not chew up users' data, and even if it did, would not
cause a 700-post thread on a mailing list in the course of recovering
that data.

the arrow keys, <del>, <backspace>, <CR>, C-x C-f, C-x C-s, C-x C-c, C-g
and possibly C-/.
