comment Why should I provide an undo error message?
@User112638726 I would say the alternative would be to provide the undo-feature in one consistent place as is in many desktop programs and not in a message. I don't understand why this feature is getting so much attention. It's like telling the user "We believe most of the time you are doing something wrong, so we provide you with an undo after every interaction."

comment Why should I provide an undo error message?
I am always confronted with it although most of the time I am conscious of what I am doing. For me providing a default undo prompt is not an "option".

comment Why is sugar not in a shaker?
There are sugar shakers that look like this one, that don't dispense the sugar in teaspoon amounts. Be aware.

An error message is not unintrusive @User112638726

comment What's the purpose of “This page is intentionally left blank” we see in books?
@VitalyMijiritsky A blank page could have a very specific intention. We use white spaces all the time on screens. Besides, UX is not just digital.

comment How to avoid accidental email sending?
Absolutely no! Every time that "Undo" pops up google thinks I made a mistake making me feel like a fool. So although I am aware of what I'm doing, the service constantly thinks I'm not. In addition I can't even remove that "error" message. This pattern of "provide undo everywhere" creates unnecessary visual noise that can be eliminated when implementing features correctly in the first place (e.g. "send" button at the end of the workflow)

comment Why is there no standard layout for computer keyboards?
I'd prefer a dedicated "undo" button instead.

comment “Typocaptcha” - an alternative to CAPTCHA?
Spambots are a technical problem users should not have to solve. Try using a technical solution like a honypot

comment Avoiding designing by committee
Two more points to add to that list: 1) User insights (usability tests, interviews etc.) are a very powerful argument. "I/we ran a cart sorting and found out that 98% of our users will find x there." 2) Track decisions and why they were made. This will minimize painful time-consuming discussions in the future.
