1 I normally don't get involved in 'discussions' like this, but I will this
2 time. I, personally, have no opinion on the menus issue, but I would like
3 to address your comment about conviences..
5 I believe that a large number of people don't object so much to new
6 features that 'go against their view', as they do to _having to turn them
7 off!!_ You want menus? By all means, implement it, but don't make me have
8 to turn it off if I don't like it; Make it so that if I don't like it, I
9 just don't enable it.
11 adding new conviences that are on by default is exactly like opt-out spam;
12 Just say No!!
