Why do some people like to make mountains out of molehills?
They said something to the effect of "Just because something is complicated or time consuming, doesn't mean you shouldn't do it"
I said "It DOES mean we shouldn't do it if the output is not WORTH the time and resources it will take to OBTAIN the output."
Eventually I got my way to keep the process simple, but why do people do this? Why would anyone think it is a good idea to spend countless hours chasing down unimportant pieces of information?
