WTF? Of course you can.

Perhaps because essentially none of the crap you're spouting corresponds
to remotely recent versions of emacs they're are aware of.  I'd be
increasingly dubious much applies to any previous versions either.

If everyone had such bizarre problems you describe yourself as having
with emacs, well, nobody would be using it.  That is clearly not the
case.  Of course, no one's pointing a gun at you and making you use it,
either - if you like notepad or joe or whatever, just use them instead.
