configurability can harm , but we're talking about a specific subject .
Since we're on the design discussion - my opinion is that having a list
with as much as 4 choices is OK . If someone wants to change it they
must have a few options . It's not confusing ,
But is it worth it? Saying no to options is an important discipline if
you want to contribute here. Saying yes always is an easy route to
failure. For a start, if we said that the total number of options had
to stay the same or decrease over time, which two options would you
remove in order to gain *this* one?
Well I do understand it (although picturing you like that is fun so I
might stick with it :D ). But again I say - not blind principle ,
instead work every issue out . Here I see no reason to remove the
options , since even if someone doesn't understand an entry in the list
- they just won't use it , if they've got to the list once , they can do
it again ,it's not a change that breaks their system. It's a basic
responsiveness of living things , a dog can handle an equivalent situation .
*Some* users know this. Most don't care. Until you understand that, we
won't be one the same page at all, and I'll sound like an alien
headshrinking cannibal to you. Just saying.
Again - not talking in general - I'm talking about the current issue (so
you're still no headshrinking cannibal)
defunct: No longer existing or functioning: "the defunct communist
common market" . I'm not worried though , there's enough people that
want it , so I guess it ain't going anywhere.
No, just making it defunct. It could stay in the repositories if you
wanted it there. In universe. Maybe. Remember, /headshrinking alien
P.S.:sry,for the resend
