All the freaking time. People come up with really dumb ideas.
Bork is too lazy to bother thinking up a witty signature. :polarbear:

Only yours, spacebot, only yours...

Well that's not true, really. I'm with Bork, sometimes you just gotta shut things down.

I try not to say no outright unless it's dangerous. I try to find a middle ground or make the person improve on their idea without outright denying them. It can be tricky...
Where there's smoke, there's fire. Just because you can't see it doesn't mean it doesn't exist. So just shut up, and bring some water.

Yes, because sometimes they are stupid and have no idea what they are talking about.
Ugh, I'm tired of my signature.

Yeah I try to explore the idea with the person and see what they know and what I know. Is the idea good short term, long term. If something is obviously wrong and needs a clear concise "no" sometimes it's hard depending on the person and who they are to you.

Definitely done so, only after I hear their inputs because you never know how reasonable it will sound.
