NO RATINGS

Is a crowd really a good thing? In my opinion, it really depends on the situation at the end of the day. For some scenarios, more input would only result in a chaotic outcome. On other occasions, the bigger the participation, the more fruitful the discussion would be. The way we sieve through the input also matters so that we are able to filter out only what we need. If we can manage to perform all that, then it would indeed become much more rewarding having more minds working together instead of just a single-handed person taking the wheel.
