All due respect, and so on, but what's somebody who's a "tech support"
doing posting in superfluous irritating spammish formats?

"Emacs", please, with an "s".  The most usual plural, not in common use,
is "Emacsen".

No, I've never experienced anything like this, apart from when I've
deleted files.  I've no reason to believe Emacs has deleted the guy's
files, and every reason to believe it hasn't.  Still, he's savvy enough
to have kept a backup, so no great damage has been done.
