I totally agree! I'll admit, I put "True," but it's so much fun that I'm not going to stop.I don't think time/expense and ability/needs are directly comparable.
You could just ask:
1. Is all the time/effort put into your pedalboard strictly necessary? (to which I guess many would answer 'no').
But, a follow-up question
2. Is it desirable/fun?
would, I imagine, on-the-whole be answered 'yes'.
