i couldn't agree with you more !!
it s just a process, like baking bread ...
me i would rather through as many unknowns in the process as i can
just to see what happens ( most of the time )
i can totally understand why someone else would do something other than that ...
... without chance, serendipity, human interaction, and "trubble" things get kind of boring
your milage may vary from factory specs ..
