You gave up your chance to safetyise your new direct finish sister?
Or maybe it isnít that goey after all?
Ever heard of spacing gear further apart towards the top of pitches? Sounds like it fits right in by leaving as is.

Whatís wrogn with goey anyway?
More importantly, why should you decide that for everyone else?

It smacks of same mentality as the run amok bolters.

Sound of one hand clapping happening here. Maybe get together with J Grollo to have two hands clapping for safety?
