Like I said - who the hell would do that! ;-)

Ditto here. Who really prefers a rows-and-columns based method (AKA a 
box!) of copying text? I can't say there's been a single time when I 
said "Damn I wish I could just copy and paste a box of text. Copying a 
line of text just isn't what I want to do right now!". YMMV.

No. That's called your imagination!

Somehow I doubt that.

Right, which is why you went through so much effort to type in all those 
words explaining this but to which the sarcasm is not the least bit 
funny nor witty. No, methinks you were taking a jab and then attempting 
to cover it up with a claim of sarcasm and claims  of rhetorical questions.
