Then what is it that electric-indent-mode gives you that prevents you
personally from turning it off?

Please read the past discussions about that, before you decide to
start another one.  If you still think it's a good idea after you've
read that, I guess we will, but at least we could then try to avoid
saying again what has been already beaten to death.

Personally, I find arguments about Emacs defaults one of the most
futile kind of arguments.  They tend to drag on and on, when all you
need to do to solve the problem is a few lines in your ~/.emacs, many
times just one line.  But that's me.
