One thing that's important to note is that no one has provided any
concrete evidence linking the specific configuration settings and hard
drive wear.  Everything has been your typical slashdotty me-too-fest of
anecdotal circumstance and post-hoc nincompoopery.

There, you've made me do it.  I've added "nincompoopery" to the vim
spelling dictionary.

Oh, and that made me add "vim".

Technology. We has it.
