Many [...] design decisions have their roots in my dislike for forcing people to do things in some particular way [...] Often, I was tempted to outlaw a feature I personally disliked, I refrained from doing so because I did not think I had the right to force my views on others.

I'm ragedownvoting, spending my hard-earned points, every single person not answering the question asked or answering it in a way that makes OP unaware of the solution's caveats. If somebody asks for "a solution without XY", an answer telling him "use XY" or "don't do it at all" is not an answer. It's a valid comment, yes - not an answer though. Telling him "it's a stupid question" - regardless of the exact way it's spelled out - without providing any attempt to answer the question is not a valid answer also. You don't have to be overly polite - but try to be factual and spot-on.
