turning off features that have design flaws in my eyes simply isnt a
fix, but only a mere attempt to cure the symptom from a pure
philosophical point of view. surely alot of more experienced users do
use and enjoy those workarounds but at the end of the day we are
crippling features instead of fixing issues.
workarounds just slow down fixes though.
