No, the stupidity does not lie with us. It lies with them. Their ignorance becomes obvious just by examining the history of film scores. Yes, taste and numbers are important (and sometimes arbitrary), but I would put less emphasis on the total number and I would try to concentrate on the diversity of the number across (important) divergent groups, ie. the informed film score community that constantly studies a plethora of scores and "them." Ah, this is kind of stupid. Just ignore the numbers. You know, a lot of "informed" people voted for Dubya in two consecutive elections...
