Do you want to say that nobody ever lost any data on
ext3-formatted disks? Be realistic.

But does it warrant my exhortation to stay away from
it? Probably not. It was a joke without a smiley sign.
ext3 is probably a solid, though a bit clumsy and slow 

I appreciate your criticism. I jumped the same way 
when someone else used the same kind of FUD about 
reiserfs which I would always recommend over all other.
