i've read (and agree with) the long and theoretical explanations about why 
local by default is the wrong choice; but could you share any short anecdote 
that convinced you of this?

my point is that a short and simple example might be more convincing than 
the 'real' reasons (and easier to repeat again and again each time this issue 
is mentioned...)
