My initial thought was that suppress would block callbacks from being fired. This would be intuitive and useful, especially when testing, if you were using callbacks. I never would have thought it would block saving!
I agree that the larger problem has to do with the nature of callbacks. There are better ways to do the same…
I often ask myself “Am I serving the phone, or is the phone serving me?” This question frames the issue of agency that you speak of.
When we mindlessly scroll through social feeds with no real intent, or check for new notifications every 5 minutes, we are serving our phones and they become our masters.
Our corporate mantra has been “do more with less” for a long time. The phrase is typically used after a new idea or project is introduced. In that context, it has come to mean “do this on top of everything else you’re already doing, and don’t expect additional help.”

This is the same reason I bought a 2005 Avalon last year for about $9K with only 116K miles on it. Great car at an amazing price that will last for years. The Avalon is the most under-valued semi-luxury car on the market.
I have a co-worker that drove his 2001 Avalon past 450K miles, and was still able to sell it for over $2K.

Since then I’ve put the 35 pounds back on (and then some), don’t feel ‘fresh’ and am overall less…
