because you get aware of problems

real story shortly before christmas: reboot of our fileserver running on 
the same virtualization cluster and SAN storage as other servers, mount 
count reached -> emergency shell, manual fsck and confirm all things to fix

i really do not want to know what would have happened a year later with 
the filesystem, after that i rebooted all other servers with a forced 
fsck and not a single one while sharing the same hardware had an error
