No Jonathan, I don't mean that.

At all.

If I meant that I would have said it. Do you see?

And I object to this attitude that one is not allowed to voice their 
opinion on a subject if the subject in question is some form of 
open/collaborative effort that one has not contributed to.

There are plenty of things I'm good at. Web design isn't one of them. 
And at the same time that does not invalidate my opinion when it comes 
to usability of sites. I am, after all, a user. One who cares about 

People are, and should be allowed to say "I don't like it." as feedback 
to the people who are doing the work, otherwise, how do they know if the 
people they're making things for like the results?

Since we all know there is more than one way to do it I would encourage 
you to remember that there is more than one way of helping to build 
something. And if you don't regard testing and feedback as worthwhile in 
that regard then I pity your customers and/or employer.

This attitude is also, in my opinion, another reason the l.pm is 
sometimes a less-than-friendly place.

Yours Sincerely,
