Because you just log in to one site to get to Emacs.

You don't have to be a nomad on several sites and move
back and forth. You don't have to care about any of
that. You just go to the specific site for the specific
purpose.

Collecting material that is associated on one place,
logically in categories and so forth, makes the
material more clear, more accessible, etc.

You yourself said: not another site to monitor!
(pseudo-quote) It is not another site to monitor - it
is *the* site to monitor.

By the way, I remember who rewarded you a bounty on
"Linux & Unix" years ago. If you have stayed on SX
since then I take it you are fond of the SX sites. You
are fond of Emacs, of course. So: how can it be you are
not found of an Emacs SX site?

This doesn't make any sense to me. I'm the one not
liking the SX sites and I'm the only one (?) in favor!

In the world of principles, yes. In reality, I can't
see anything else than that an Emacs-specific site will
bring about more material and more advanced material
that will be easier to browse and access.

Not "mentally challenged" - I wrote "morons" - if you
use moronic software, you become a moronic computer
user. Give me a bunch of Counterstrike- and
World of Warcraft-playing kids (morons) and I'll take
them to the woods and turn them into techno warriors,
all using Emacs, Vim, Linux, Solaris, like yedis...
