re: the time losses were utterly massive. Something like a minute a day 1 minute a day is akin to saying don't drink water as walking to the bathroom...

I pray to god no one else suffers from this level of hubris and corner cutting :'(

Thank you for illustrating why I felt the need to make this post. People who don't follow the conventional wisdom are met with toxicity, and I hope that by posting this I can help remove the stigma.

I'm sorry if you feel like my post is toxic.

Conventional wisdom usually carries some weight, and challenging it requires a good argument to go against it.

I only read about "saving 1 minute a day being massive savings", which seems to me like a very weak reason to promote these sort of choices.

Again, I don't believe my post will change your choices. I just hope no one else follows this example and nothing bad comes from it, either for you or anyone else.

PS. Calling out a post as toxic is an easy way to dismiss a post by leveraging a "red herring" approach, that doesn't necessarily address the argument being made (which is that this is a bad idea). I might be Dr. Evil, but he can still make a valid argument.
