I agree with that, and I've often railed against the webbricks and the atomics who claim to be realists and use unrelenting pessimism as evidence of that. I especially don't like the attitude among some that Elias' hiring was a mistake and that the entire plan is likely doomed, and the sooner they get on an entirely different track the better. That started days or weeks after he was hired.
But I've learned over time that in any group, especially a messageboard, that there will always be a wide spread in opinion. And that will include a few people who are 100% convinced that it's all going to fail, and it's already in the process of that right now. No matter what the circumstances are.
