No, I cannot accept this.  I am partially sighted.  That is my perspective.  
Yes, MATE on Mint is awful.  For me.  I did make that clear.  One man's meat 
is another man's poison.  And I can give rational reasons for feeling that. 

But that doesn't mean that there are not those who love it.  In fact, I know 
that there are, and I have no problem with that.  I have never said that it 
should not exist or that this distro or that distro should not use it. Or 
that those who use it are inferior.  In fact, some might say that they are 
superior because they clearly have better eyesight. ;-)  Merely that I find 
it awful.  And that in a discussion on another list we could not hink of 
another DE which is as configurable, and therefore as suitable for those of 
us with less than 20:20 vision, as TDE.
