I really enjoyed some of the comments on Raymond Chen’s latest entry. As I read them, I thought to myself “Oh boy, I need to add a comment explaining that no one ever reads dialogs, so you folks should really stop suggesting that to Raymond as the quick fix in the comments on his blog whenever he posts about a Windows design decision.“ But, of course, he (and Management MVP Richard Threlkeld) beat me to it:

I find it ironic that people’s suggested solutions are “Add more annoying dialogs that nobody will bother reading”…
And I put it to you, dear blog reader: Do you ever read dialogs that pop up in your face when you’re trying to do something? I sure as heck don’t, and I don’t expect my customers to either. That’s why we try to avoid adding dialogs if possible (of course sometimes it’s the only or best or most affordable option).
 Yes, I really did think “oh boy”, spelled it right out in the ol’ brain-thang.
