in thread On Scalar Context

DWIM refers to doing something useful rather than providing something useless (e.g. because of lack of forethought or because of a blind drive for consistency). This is not a problem, and it does have value.

«"Do What I Mean" means different things to different people» is a straw man. It's still better to provide something that's generally useful over something that isn't.
