Please note, when I use the phrase "dumb tool", I mean that the tool itself is dumb, as in has no intelligence built in.

Using the tool is not dumb if you use it as it is intended to be used; which is to say you chose the policies that you find useful and use the tool to double check yourself.

Where it goes wrong is when people modify their code to "satisfy" policies that they obviously disagree with.

With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
