Ha, I don't think I wrote that, in ancient Rome there were
plebeians and patricians. The word "plebeian" may "be related
to the Greek, plēthos, meaning masses". [1] However the slaves
were even more the masses both in terms of numbers and the
meaning of the word and what's more "[b]y 287 BC, plebeians
had eliminated their political disadvantages in relation to
the patricians" which I don't think the slaves every did. [1]

Yes, "most" of the ones I know as well, at least the ones that
were young 1968~1975 are likely to at least be familiar to the
terms ...

I'm not an Org user and also do not use pdf-tools so I can't
help you but if you describe the problems you experience
a little less broadly here or on #emacs I'm sure what you
describe can be corrected and so will benefit any future user
regardless of profession or life inclination ...

It is known as font lock in the Emacs world and it shouldn't
make Emacs slow, again ask for help or do `emacs-report-bug'
to get help/hopefully have the issue fixed.
