Boeing is a GREAT company; how they managed to put out a SW package that could argue with a pilot and prevent him from FLYING THE DAMN PLANE is a serious defect.

Airliners have had stick shakers and stick pushers to warn of and prevent stalls, for years. That Boeing put in a silently acting, continuously operating system to avoid stalls implies the aircraft is so stall prone that it would challenge the skill of a pilot to operate the aircraft without the automatic system. Appears the system they installed is overenthusiastic. If a software patch dampens it's enthusiasm, will 73s start stalling and falling out of the sky, instead of diving in?
