Unfortunately the ones that are the most agressive by shouting loudest

Is there a way to collect objective information such that we would be
able to know something with data other than with emotions?

If the data showed that some wanted it one way and others wanted it
the opposite way (which is of course what it would show) then how
would having this data help or hinder either side?

I will be one of the disenfranchised if /usr is deprecated.
