And I thank you for that. I will listen. As much as I possibly can. I promise.
Please let me clarify something though: I do not take position on the rather sterile debate of objective measuring vs.
subjective listening. I deeply believe that both are absolutely necessary, for a lot of very good reasons that we do not need to cover on this thread (other people can do a much better job at this than myself). In fact, on most reasonably contested issues, I usually do not take any position, for I believe that different viewpoints can bring complementary enlightenments on a particular topic, and one would be wise to carefully listen to as many contradictory opinions as possible before passing any judgement.
Therefore my prudent approach to subjective listening should not be interpreted as some kind of quantitative bias in disguise. Instead, it is nothing more than a humble acknowledgement of my limited skills. But I am here to learn — about this, there can be no doubt...
