Well, no. That's not the only way to do things, and should in fact be the
absolute *last resort*. The *best* way to do things is to convince people
that what you're saying is beneficial, doesn't have any drawbacks (or,
if it does, change what you're saying so as to avoid the drawbacks), or,
in the absolute worst case, that the drawbacks are minor and outweighed
by orders of magnitude by the benefits.

Cheers,
