Why not have an "at your own risk policy"? IMO, innovation should be encouraged not discouraged. After all, we are adults. The patronizing attitude in tech. (art) towards the end user will eventually cease.
Okay, so what if we were children and needed rules about what to do with our stuff? Even for children, the fewer rules that exist the better. Conscience is the ultimate source of rules. We can't be that for others. When an issue comes up which their own reason won't answer then a rule can provide boundaries. But if their common sense keeps them in line then all the more power to them.
"Don't run with scissors." That rule makes sense for children.
As adults working with lighting though, we may run with scissors to go cut some gel because we are in a hurry.
It's like being talked down to by another adult, which is totally unnecessary. What do you mean, "don't tinker with it?" It's off putting.
Did you read about John Deer & GM and ownership in the news?
