Yes, those are dreadful. Stiff, long throw, and linear.
Neoreactionarism is a pseudo-intellectual fascist movement that Musk and Peter Thiel have embraced.  One ideological plank to neoreactionarism is that the "liberal” media is in cahoots with — wait for it — American intelligence agencies and other political establishments to thwart the rule of the enlightened technocrat.  It is only the rise of a superior technocratic class who will crush the establishment and their middle managers and bring about true freedom to human beings.  And it looks like Musk is trying to bring about this political Nirvana at Twitter.

Similar, but a different slider color. I guess I was more specifically thinking Hi-Tek high profiles, which I felt for the first time recently in an old Atari 800 a coworker brought in to play around with. I did find them stiff, but they were very smooth. I prefer clickies, but I can appreciate a nice linear. I suppose the long throw doesn't bother me. When I was paying attention to the switches, the system wasn't on, so I didn't get a good feel for them in actual use.
