Technically, you did… You were just quoting someone else and unfortunately quoting quotes in here doesn’t work so well
It was actually @benjito that said that (in another thread) and it appeared inside of @Eugene’s post as a quote. I noticed that when one tries to quote quoted text (by selecting it and clicking quote) the discourse system seems to get confused and misattributes it.
But, did you…?
No, “technically” I did not. Nitpickingly, one could argue that these words were in my typing, but it is a ridiculous proposition to assert that I “said” it.
Forum quirks are no excuse for misquoting: you just edit the quote markup to be correct.
This is an example where it utterly doesn’t matter in the specific case - no-one could care less what my opinion about emacs is - but things can go pear shaped where people are misquoted, so I don’t like to let that pass as a matter of course.
I’m sorry about that - I tried my hand at the automatic quoting system and did not notice the result was misleading. I edited my post to remove the confusion.
Woo hoo another quoting-capable person joins the fold! A text-editor skill if ever there was one
Must be a Vim user
I just realised what my favourite text editor is: discourse!
It’s nice here… I’m also quite partial to GitHub’s setup as well
I, for whatever reason, always confuse discourse and discord. It took me far too long to figure out why you said that
So many today I might have to hang up my keyboard !
That one was on me though, not you
I also really like this forum software. It’s a probably a big reason of why I wound up spending so much more time here than r/baduk and L19x19.
However, although I came for the superior forum software, I stayed for the great community.
I learned emacs starting in '89 (pre vim’s existence). I’ve tried others since, but my fingers and brain and the suitcase full of elisp functions and macros I carry around are pretty much set in stone.
vi started '76 (like Emacs)
Do i hear some bragging here?
No. Emacs ist '76 as well.
