comment pronunciation of 'ctl' in commands like 'systemctl'
I'm disappointed to see this question closed. Rather than "debate, arguments, polling, or extended discussion", there will be one, or maybe two valid answers. This similar question (for zsh) is quite useful: superuser.com/questions/178174/how-is-zsh-pronounced

comment How to disable mouse in gvim without breaking selection?
Right now I have to toggle paste mode before I paste, and this would mean I would have to toggle "copy" mode, too. It's better than nothing, but it would be ideal if there weren't a manual step.

comment Transparent background of Vim editor within the xfce-4 terminal
So my answer was right, then, wasn't it? I suggested it might be a colorscheme that explicitly sets the background to black or white, which indeed turned out to be the problem.
