I get a kick out of the point of view that many publishers have the
days, that betas are simply public relations tools because
uncontrolled beta audiences tend to be non-sophisticated testers.
And so let's make betas even more uncontrolled.  ;-)

I could just as easily decide that quiet dinner parties are a waste
of time because everytime I threw one I walked down lower main
street tapping every fifth person to come have free drinks and food.
And those ungrateful wretches sucked down my stuff, trashed my
house, and gave me a bad rep as a host.  I should have thrown a
kegger instead! :-)
