I said nothing to contradict that, but it's not the point of the thread.
Doing a fresh install is a way to "clean out old release remnants", e.g.
stuff you installed and forgot about, but doing it to remove old
dot-files is ridiculous. Presumably you have a backup of your home
directory which you are going to restore after the fresh install, so
what do you gain? Absolutely nothing.

as bad as top-posting. Some might even say it's worse. I had to go
search in old mail to recall what I had said about this topic].
