I don't have any beef with your basic position, although I would note
that things can be quiet because they're working fine or things could be
quiet because the error messages aren't being
generated/dispatched/delivered... if you're not keeping your eye on
things how would you know?

It's a comfort to me to sit here and watch my maintenance scripts run in
the background as I do my work... it's not distracting and usually
everything is green.
