This is a terrible argument to make if your expectation is to receive help.

Most people instead try to put forth the case that what they are doing
is "not evil, actually".

Instead you explicitly request that anyone with a low opinion of getopt
should have a low opinion of you too? Why are you trying to turn this
into what kind of "evil" human being you are?
