Discussion on: The case against aliases

I am so-so on aliases; I think they make a lot of sense for stuff like git unstage -- ie, taking something and adding a name and meaning that is clearer. Sort of like how if there is a function from an API I am using all the time whose name I find confusing/unclear, I will just make a tiny wrapper function with a name that makes sense, etc. Stuff like gcma to me is sort of like taking document.getElementById and shadowing it to document.gebi

Yeah, I try not to alias git commands to acronyms, it makes my life harder.
