Tagging VS and R#er since I'm not sure which one is guilty.

A few months ago my copy of VS started trying to be helpful by, when I select a block of text and type ( wrapping the text in a ( ) pair instead of replacing the selected text with an (. If this was something that Borland had invented in its IDEs 25+ years ago, or that MS had done 20+ years ago I'd probably think it was a brilliant feature; but after several months of swearing at it I've concluded that my current typing patterns are too deeply embedded in my brain to chance - and avoiding a backspace/delete press by typing over unwanted text is very much at the core of how I type.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
