Yes, you're definitely being weird about this.

Okay. But this misses the point I was making entirely, which is that Bob
Supnik went through a lot of trouble to build the underlying code for any
machine to be simulated, and writing a simulator from scratch is fun,
educational, and a lot of work. It's not like writing it under SIMH will
make it less accessible. In fact, it makes it MORE accessible because you
can build it under Windows and Linux both.

It wasn't a commandment, more of a suggestion.

Why is everyone so damn touchy today?
