lol. Well... no one is holding you back from running it... but if you
tried to bring that up as arguments why others should run it i have to
honestly say you failed big time, and since you are lobbying that fs
that strongly i am curious:

How many machines with how much storage and how much IO (what
percentage read/write) do you run it on for what timeframe?
Why do you run it?
Which versions do you deploy?
How critical are those machines to your infrastructure?

kind regards,
