I'll take a shot at that
1

Rawdigger has helped me to learn how to setup my camera to optimize my exposure.

If I overexpose it tells me where and how much. With this information I have developed an understanding of my camera's exposure behavior such that my exposure is always set as high as possible without blowing the highlights, minimizing the noise in the shot. Neither the camera's histogram or blinkies are a true indicator for this information.

Either that makes total sense to you or it sounds like a frivolous waste of time. But there's your answer!
