While I don't like quotes that aren't actual
quotes (e.g., who exactly said "it has always
been like that"? NB rhetorical question) -
again, while I don't like that sort'a stuff,
I *do* have to agree I get this/your general
vibe as well!

I don't consider myself an Emacs expert - far
from it. But I've been here for 10+ years, so
I'm happy with my Emacs and my skill level.

But this place still doesn't feel like home!
That is strange.

I'm not sure your analysis is correct why this
is tho, but heck, it might be, or part of it
at least.
