Which is even worse from a support side of things.

Because even more time is spent diagnosing a bug for a user when an error they didn't see is causing part or all of their addon not to load. The user has no idea why they're addons isnt working correctly or loading as the error that would tell them why has been turned off. Without their knowledge.
