I feel people tend to prefer short answers to long ones. The thing is, the answers to many questions, especially complex ones, usually are not short answers. It really comes down to patience, and desire for the truth. A lot of people seem to have very little patience and would rather go with a short, comfortable answer that might not necessarily be true, as apposed to trying to understand a tedious complex answer, despite the fact that it is more truthful.
The people who prefer the short convenient answers deserve whatever horrible thing happens to them.
