Do I? Let's look at some of the discussions:

* W. Trevor King agrees the default should change
* Junio C Hamano agrees the default should change
* John Keeping agrees the default should change
* Matthieu Moy doesn't agree anything should change
* Linus Torvalds agrees changing the default is fine

* Richard Hansen agrees with my proposal
* Ramkumar Ramachandra agrees with my proposal
* Brian M. Carlson is not happy but can live with my proposal
* Jeff King accepts my proposal is a good way to move forward
* Matthieu Moy is OK with change, but only if the default remains the same

So, by "everyone" I mean everyone but one person (you).

Rational people don't think in absolute terms, "everyone" means
virtually everyone, which is the case.
