Brilliant, so please explain the existence of mechanical switch technology in keyboards long before the mass-shift to rubberdomes brought on by the manufacturers' desire to cut their costs? Explain the cult-ish love for the Model M and F, along with Cherry's original mechanical boards? Then what about the existence of ALPS switches in boards, along with their clones as well? These all predate the rise of gaming-related peripherals.

It's certainly not that they've solved some new problem, but when the majority of people who use them feel that they offer a better typing experience than rubberdomes, maybe your experience is an outlier.

Sure you may prefer scissor switch mechanisms to cherry-based switches, but you can't honestly tell me that you'd prefer say the ubiquitous HP rubberdomes present in businesses and public institutions to even the cheapest of mechanical boards.

Please explain the existence of steam engines prior to the internal combustion engine.
