No, it doesn't mean listening, especially not to everybody. With the
possible exception of interviews, of course.

If you listen to everyone you here a cacophony. And it should be very
clear by now that you can expect contradictory feedback. Finally people
do not necessarily know what they want without even realising it

The users we should want to reach are not all on the forum, some channel
or list. Those are likely just the internet-affine vocal fraction
(minority if we're lucky).

There's no consensus even with the current incarnation of brown.
I agree with Troy that brown can be done better and shouldn't be judged
on what we have seen so far.
