What even?

Why would you make the case to tell people to stop customizing their environment to their liking?

It's not like an alias removes the original command.

Gws, gcf, gca, glg, gri all mean something to me that many might not follow but they improve my workflow.

If someone sits at my machine they can still use normal git commands.

I would take the stance that everyone should experiment with what works for them and opt to stray from the beaten path in their working environment. Everyone has their own approach so this article is entirely subjective.
