It's another form of "on error resume".

When my applications would go into an exception (meaning ANY exception), it would terminate, since from that point I could not guarantee that the data had not been corrupted. It would simply state and log the error, and exit.

Now imagine Windows doing the same. Wouldn't be very workable as an OS, if every exception were to cause Windows to shutdown without saving.

The area between those extremes is big and gray; but it is better than being extremely religious about it.
