  • Given humans' tendency to only speak up when they don't like something and to keep schtum when they're happy (just look at any restaurant review site that lets the hoi polloi post!), I think that shows that we're both getting it right almost all the time, and providing a useful service.

    I've seen that argument used to justify all sorts of things that weren't necessarily true.

    • I counted about ten different people explicitly expressing their gratitude in the last couple of days on perl-qa and on use.perl. Even among the very few people who did explicitly speak up one way or another, the complainers, while very vocal (and with valid reasons!), are in the minority.

      • I agree. I just don't believe it's possible to draw conclusions about the rightness or efficacy of any particular action based on the idea that silence means assent.
