Change the wiggle default NOW or else.....

Can you please give me an explanation as to why you have the default as it is now? I know you are studying the data for the effect of all these and understand that you do not want to be rushed into making a decision. It seems to me then that it would be best if you analyzed the data by allowing only one type of wiggle on each puzzle. Why am I suggesting this? Am I deranged? Possibly, but having the 3 or four wiggles there with a default of auto or medium as previously done is an attempt to coax us into using the wiggle you want to check. I get it. However, you are not taking into account the awful consequences of your choice.
To give you an example: This morning I ran a script for 1.75 hours only to discover that I was on the darned default. OK, so I calmed down, created a new track and tried again. Went out and did things for a couple of hours and came back to find that I have wasted another 2 hours on the wrong default (luckily I now practice constant saving due to the problem this creates). Apparently I inadvertenty switched defaults when I did a look see on a save I had made not relaizing that the track change was going to foil me once again. Now that means 4 hours of wasted computer time, wear and tear on the processor and fans, wasted electricity (= money, carbon footprint, not to mention precious bandwidth. And most importantly this is not the first time this has happened. Far from it. I would estimate between 70 100 times is a closer estimate. So you will say well that's your fault. Why don't you remember to check the default? Admittedly, I am old and brain damaged but perhaps in some mysterious way I may represent a small but significant sample of your players. There may be other default challenged folders here.
The low wiggle is currently the one that least harm, at least till you have come to definitive conclusion and picked your favored wiggle. Maybe I'm wrong; maybe those who like to work in medium, auto or high will disagree, but it seems to me that if you have to have a default, low is the only choice. I and I suspect others have been extraordinarily patient, so can you give me or us a reasonable explanation as to why this practice continues?
