I'm not responsible for your inferences.

Then there are whiners.

"Why" has been explained many times in the past on this very list.

I think you forgot to delete the word "brain"? Not sure what's going
on here. I think maybe the idea is that you're angry because I don't
like transparent terminals? Write back

I don't normally open my mouth to type.

Transparent terminals unnecessarily increase computational power
required to render simple text. They make a fundamental application
harder for a computer to run. This makes the core program less
portable by raising the hardware requirements. The only gain is
(arguably) aesthetic. This, in short, is a completely braindead idea
of no practical value, unless you tend to use a computer in the manner
of someone who has been hit very hard in the head and has forgotten
entirely what computers do and what terminals are
