It is a false characterization to say versions later than 2.18 are
'incomprehensible'. The developers go to enormous lengths to make sure
old code works, at the expense of some incompatible syntax changes,
which are easily understood, and there is convert-ly to help you.

Others have made the vital point that list members, always willing to
offer their expertise, and not likely to install or maintain an
obsolete version to help you, so you are cutting yourself off from a
very valuable source of assistance.

Please consider installing 2.20 or the development versions, which are
amongst the most stable open source that I know.

Nobody is going to keelhaul you, but everybody will strongly urge you
to follow the upgrade path. It's to your benefit. I for one will not
answer questions for people running 2.18.

The analogy would be insisting on running Windows 95 now, because you
find WIndows 10 incomprehensible. Sadly, I do actually know people who
want to do this.
