in reply to To warn or not to warn, that is the question

This reminds me of the "Bart's Comet" episode of the Simpsons. Right at the end, after the comet burns up in the polluted air, Moe yells: "Now let's burn down the observitory so this'll never happen again!"

To use another analogy (since all the good real answers have been used): Sure, you could drive around town at 200 mph. You'd get to where ever your going REALLY quickly. But you may crash. So you'd probably be better off driving so a little slower so you can be safer.
