That reminds me of the saying, "If you design something so simple that even an idiot can use it, then only an idiot will use it."

i think the opposite case works better: "If you design something so complicated that only a genius can use it, then only a genius will use it."

ease of use should be a goal of design, shouldnt it Huh   ...a lot of otherwise smart people use the idiot box (my TV is on right now LOL)...  

as far as the numbers of hams -- i think unrestrained growth must not be a goal or we are logically bound to support the elimination of exams & testing.
sometimes less is more

Look at the CB band back in the late 70's as to what happens with unrestrained growth.  Though all those AM carriers made for a lot of hetrodyne whistles.  But SSB wouldn't cure the dirty words...    Cheesy
