Superstu - I've addressed exactly your comment twice previously. So far, no one has written a response which addresses my justification, nor -for that matter- presents a contrary viewpoint to my position (all I'm seeing are tangentially related comments/statements, none of which present any sort of counter-point).

I addressed why using tape or hand jammies ( and subsequently changing hand size) is more of an unbalanced artificial aid (with respect to difficulty) than using chalk or climbing shoes.

I also addressed why using chalk or climbing shoes is less of a detriment (in fact, a relatively minor one) to the physiological challenge of a crack climb, as opposed to using hand jammies or tape. The key word there is physiological as opposed to physical or masochistic.
