So, what you are inferring is that before an individual makes a
suggestion for an improvement, modification or whatever in a product,
they should be fully capable of instigating that change/modification
themselves. Is that correct? In other words, what you are inferring is
that if the end user is not capable of fixing/correcting/modifying/etc
the product themselves, they should just keep their opinions to
themselves. Would I be paraphrasing your statement correctly?
