Are you participating in the discussion, or was that just a general observation?

I thought at the very least they should be included in the discussion!

"A, B and C walked into a scoop" doesn't sound right.

"A, B and C walked into a bar" does.

"A, B and C walked into a nipple" is a completely different genre of story.

The bars have it.

I'm on a scoop phase, but some uses require bars, for example when using a small keyboard with some kind of entertainment system, while sort of sleeping on the sofa

A bar broken up into two small dots.
I read somewhere that if you have carpal-tunnel syndrome then you wouldn't be able to distinguish the two dots as being separate.

Edit: I found a note saying that I had heard it in an episode of Dr Oz.

Scoops feel like you have tow fingers that are slightly too short ;)

Three was a time when group buys didn't include bars. Dark times.

The worst offender is gateron: the use scoops and bars. In the same cap. How sad.

And we can all type without looking, by feeling the keycaps, right?

I know people joke about it..

But a few years back, this was an honest discussion where there were some that were of the very stringent belief that GMK should only be scoops...and that offering FJ with bars was a waste not used by many...and it would be a waste...even though most of the time the sets offer plenty of extras that many people will also not use. 

Thankfully bars seems to be offered as some of the extra keys in the group buys people are doing for GMK...which was always the right decision...far more than say, offering ISO or 75% or 1800 as part of the included keys...

Serious question: is it possible to feel scoops or deep dishes accurately with fingertips?  So far I've only dealt with bars/numpad nipples as a touch typist.

Yes...it takes a bit of getting used to if you haven't used them before...at first it feels like something is both missing and gripping your index fingers at the same time...(Smooth on the finger tips, something gripping the edges). 

I find bars are much easier to find...
