I noticed that this particular question is being down voted and received some close votes: Why is Vim pasting after the cursor?
Where is the correct place to discuss or disagree with such close votes? I was not sure if the comments would give enough space and be the right place so I post my arguments here. Please see if they apply (in this case and in general).
The title of the question seems to be a perfectly valid question for this site in my opinion. The text in the question itself is a bit opinion loaded and the author says things like:
Is this something important for the workflow or is this just a mistake made 40 years ago?
Is this behavior useful for something is is it just not logical?
I assume that the down votes and close votes where cast because that sounds a bit rude (towards our beloved
$EDITOR :) and opinionated (the close vote is marked as "opinion based"). But I do not think that answers to the title question are opinion based, which would be a valid reason. In fact the two that are given (I confess I gave one) are not opinion based in my opinion. Additionally I argue that the fact that this question has seen so much activity in such a short time also indicates that it is interesting to the community (I remember wondering about this as well when I started using vim/terminals).
I also would like to correct the tone of that question a little bit although I can not say that it is offensive to me as the reader. But I have trouble thinking up an edit or a comment for this question to do that.
