Sorry, but is that what you would do? Dont always think users are
stupid. If you hunt for the stupid ones, you will get the stupid ones.
I would prefer to have more smarter users. But you have to be very
dumb to not understand simple questions to fit your needs perfect. And
we would always have the "give me the default" option for users like
that. By the way, have you ever thought about that the users are right
now going away because they think wtf is that? It's not like that we
have the perfect solution yet.
