Tim Kastelle introduces me to Sturgeon’s Law, which states that Nothing is always absolutely so. He also sums up why it’s tempting to ignore it.
Now that’s a really bad point to try to build a blog post around. It’s always a lot harder to explain why there are exceptions to every rule. It’s easier to make big categorical statements. It’s more fun, it’s easier to make lists out of them, they get more tweets, and +1s, etc.
Generally speaking, on the whole, I largely agree, all else being equal, subject to contract, your mileage may vary.
