Everyone should simply be forced to use the One Editor until they like
it. Electric shock/aversion therapy could easily be used to ensure
the correct salivation or revulsion response depending on what editor

Afterall its not enough to just use the One Editor ourselves.
Everyone else should use it too, and they should be forced to enjoy


P.S. I use both editors
