If it blows your mind that people would write to mongo without making sure the write succeeded, then doesn't that make the default behaviour itself mindblowing?

Perhaps a better option would be to have an 'unsafe_write' option. But then of course, benchmarks would look less impressive which didn't use a function with 'unsafe' in the name.

It blows my mind a person wouldn't read the manual.

Manual, not tutorial.
