Nope, that text doesn't have any scientific value. It contains
variations of "Nobody cares", "Nobody wants..." without backup. I
neither have met this Nobody person, nor do I care what he wants more
than I care for any other user in the pool. In fact, I know more
people who care about certain design choices than who don't. Moreover,
the text tends to confuse bad design with customizability (although it
tries hard not to).

Try again.
