I honestly don't write stuff like that to try to make people feel that I think they're foolish.

But I see it does. So I apologize.

I'm truly just reflecting something I keep seeing over and over and over again.

Looking back, the word "desperate" which was a mild tossaway in my head when I wrote it is easy to see as extremely perjorative. So, again, I apologize for that very poor choice of term and want to make it clear that I don't feel editors who don't like X are wrong not to like it.

If it doesn't fit someones style or preferences, that's fine.

But there IS an underlying point behind this.

I still believe that everyone (myself totally included) underestimated how deeply difficult it would be to get an entire generation of editors to think in new concepts about some fundamental editing operations.

And I still see DEEP resistance to X expressed not in terms of how it DOES work, but in terms of how experienced editors think it SHOULD work based on their totally reasonable operating conditioning that provides a very real barrier to some of the new thinking.

I express that very inartfully at times, and I see that it offends people.

Once again, sorry.
