Sure. You can. On the whole, considering the general level of the human race...what do you think the statistics say about people like you versus them others?

Which is, you know, annoying. But if the thing would potentially go very loudly BOOM, for instance, if you fuck with it, and SOMEONE would fuck with it, this is a certainty...then I can not only understand, but firmly agree with it bricking.

Which, in a way, does fall under the above. A tractor is the sort of thing that can cause severe injury. You think SOMEONE wouldn't sue John Deere if they fucked around with it on their own, got it wrong, and harmed themselves? This isn't the Information Age or the Modern Age or any of that. It's the Litigation Age. THAT is the purpose.
