It would certainly turn most people off it, that's for sure. Similar to the endless debates on bolts though in trad climbing, without the pedantry but equal in the boring absolute ethics....

A comment by Ron O on the last page regarding big wall master John Middendorf...
"I'm LMAO to see the shoe on the other foot. It seems somebody is a hell of a lot more forthcoming about his own routes than he is about his claims of imaginary bolt ladders on somebody else's...This whole WoS uproar speaks volumes about what a bunch of whack jobs we climbers are, furiously arguing over the arrangement of deck chairs while we pointedly ignore the iceberg dead ahead."
