I don’t get why you equate ‘effort’ with ‘suffering’.  That’s a reductio
ad absurdum, and pretty far off from "this thing here is something
that’ll pay you back with great rewards once you decide to invest some
time into learning it".

Which is not something I disagree with.  All I’m saying is that a user
who has no interest in Emacs should not be how we’re designing for.
Because that limits what you can achieve.
