It was thus said that the Great colecmac at protonmail.com once stated:

  Keep the feature but don't add a "quirks" mode.  It will hurt Drew in the
long term.  I use Amfora and enable favicon.txt support.  I go to Drew's
site and get banned.  Oh, Amfora isn't working for his site, let me try
another client.  Oh, I'm *still* banned?  WTF?  Okay, I'll just skip this
snowflake site then.  Or maybe I (and other former Amfora users who got
banned and switched clients) send email to Drew asking to be reinstated.

  Also, this message from Drew:

  Seriously, who put Drew in charge?
