That is because you use your system interactively.  But there might be no
user around to do anything, or the system might be in a state where no
action can be contributed by the user (because everything that could get
user input has just broken down).

Of course, we really have to look at the specific case, there is probably no
blanket statement for such things.  All errors that can be recovered from
should of course not cause instant server death.
