I think what you're meaning (though it's not quite coming across) is that
for most people and most situations, the downside is either nonexistent,
or so small as to be so for all practical purposes.
On the other hand, there are people and situations who believe that the
[potential] downsides are much larger. We differ in that I don't believe
that all such claims are bogus. Sure, many of the examples put forth are
rather arbitrary and contrived, but I've found that I literally can't
come up with a scenario so arbitrary and contrived that SOMEBODY isn't
dealing with pow(it,N) every day.
