Clearly you're not reading my replies correctly and do not understand this is not a theme or a platform. It is a framework and as such, doesn't work like a theme.
You should also understand that every plugin and WordPress can push updates. So if you want a completely update-free environment, you may just need to build a content management system from scratch. That is the 'only' way you'll be able to micro-manage the updates as you'd control them. Our major updates are definitely controllable, as you get the option to install them or not.
I have actually answered your question, but if you insist on changing the question with each reply this topic will go on ad infinitum. You have been informed that the customize plugin is used to prevent changes and overwritten files. If you edit the wrong .less file, you can corrupt your entire site. We do not support and won't explain further that .less files in the core framework should not be edited. We wrote this framework to give you a great system for site design and control. The customize plugin is not mandatory. However, if you break your site by editing core files you'll have violated your licence and will not get support past being told to reinstall the framework.
Kindly, when using this forum, do not tell us HOW to answer your questions or what we should or shouldn't say. We answer topics in the most professional way possible. Not only is it bad netiquette, but it is not efficient use of your time or ours to continually challenge or question our support. I have given you detailed explanations of this matter.Go to the full post
