Boys, do you really not understand that this is a religious issue?  You
can't use arguments and logic to convince someone to convert their
religion, and you can't use arguments and logic to convince someone to
change editors.

Editors are like underwear.  We each have our own favorite brand, and
nothing you say will convince me to change mine.  Editor, that is.  I do
occasionally change my underwear.
