Wait, what? Where in my email above did I do any of that? I asked about what the motivation was for the change in C23 and C++23, and whether that is an issue for compiler vendors. Where did I frame anything as a "plot" and where did I say that vendors are "evil"?

I have literally no horse in this race, I was just trying to understand the motivation, I honestly didn't expect to be met with such aggression.
