Why is it dumb? If a test doesn't consistently pass, it shows there's a
problem but doesn't quantify it or get you closer to fixing it.
It's kind of like playing 20 Questions with someone who in addition to
answering "Yes" or "No" will often answer "Maybe".
My point is that if the question yields a Maybe reply (intermittent
failures) then you need to ask a different question so you can always
get a Yes (pass) or a No (fail).

I've heard, as a test that can't pass every time could obviously just
show a bug that doesn't occur every time.
