There it is folks, the bottom line, from somebody who knows, clearly stated.
Every individual has to have some function with which to evaluate "lifetime of
hallmark moments" vs. "huge loss of freedom, forego *all* ..." Clearly, the
definition of that function is something that is intensely personal. But: you
guys that optimize on hallmark *realize* how weird that looks to the rest of
us, right? The argument is essentially "give up all freedom and become a
completely different person, in order to gain benefits we can't even really
describe to you well enough to justify that on the surface..."
