There's a happy middle point: do you always give users waht they
think they want, or do you attempt, to some extent, to cajole and
entice them forward into something better in some fashion?  The
balance between the two is a personal choice.  Where you make that
choice and what criteria you use to make it are subject to both your
purposes for the activity/list, and your audience.
