I have no idea how often you had to do it. Again you're saying other
people are stupid with a hidden implication that systemd will make
their stupidity have less impact on you. BUT you still want to run
their software for some strange reason.

I have no idea how often you had to do it (again, drama queen rhetorics).

You're emotional distress about the bourne shell is unrelated to
whether systemd sucks or not.
