Yes, I know that. But I'm saying that the assumption that lies at the
base of your statement above ("it's reasonably possible to work out an
objective metric that can tell whether you're doing a job good or not")
is incorrect; to do that, you'd need someone with a thorough knowledge
of the subject to work on the metric, which they would percieve as a
waste of time (we're not a company, we're a bunch of volunteers). So,
unless you can come up with something that would indeed be objective,
I'm afraid your arguments don't hold.
