I thought the reason he was becoming disenchanted with the objective process is that the objective process isn't as perfect as he had expected (or possibly had been led to expect). Amir's part in it was only to point out that the objective process isn't perfect. As such you seem to be arguing that when Amir doesn't agree with the score, the score is right and Amir is wrong. Are you certain of this, and if you aren't certain of this (how could you possibly be ...), then what motivated you to spin it the way you did? If you had simply said not to toss out the baby with the water just because the baby isn't perfect (like in the Seinfeld episode ...), you wouldn't have said anything controversial.
I didn't even talk about the score until later when I said I don't even look at it because I don't believe a single score should represent performance. A set of data is more important to me than a single value assigned to represent the data. I still don't know what the score for this speaker was. And I don't care enough to find out.
Alright, I think I've explained my original reply enough. Bottom line: if one person doesn't like a speaker but the data suggests it's a well performing speaker, we shouldn't just take the subjective evaluation of "not like" over the data. We need to do more work.
