That's a view that I can appreciate even though I think it is invalid. There's not a lot of point going around in further circles about it because we will continue to disagree.

But, fortunately your initial assumption that everything is in the hands of "career bumblies" isn't right. I didn't want to verbal anyone by mis-remembering something so spent some time going through my emails (the gmail search is pretty damn useless).

Here's an excerpt from an email from Cliffcare on 9/11/2018 :

"We were currently in the process of organizing a couple of working groups. For one
of these, developer reps will be an integral part of moving forward and hearing
feedback from all efficiently. Adam Demmert has agreed to be the rep for climbing
developers and Simon Weill for bouldering developers. How they choose to set up
their system to work with you all will be up to them should it be a combined one or
separate or maybe both."

So, there are things in progress, even if all seems to be moving slowly. I guess the survey, whatever its flaws, is just part of the initial phase.
