I get what gremlin is getting at in an obscure fashion in the opening post, if that is what you are calling a good hard kick in the nuts.
Modern consumer sell-out climbing started with gyms and progressed to sport drilling outdoors. I've never been completely comfortable with that reality and suspect that you have at least changed your mind, if you ever were comfortable with it.
You are confusing your dinosaurs, as the real dinosaurs - often disparagingly referred to as tradsters, knew their craft and showed respect, but far from business as usual it is the new wave end of your era crew that are running their new business amok where they shouldn't be.

More power to gremlin, but will you still be lauding the rebellion when say the likes of Taipan is put off limits?
Nah, it won't happen I hear you saying, okay, substitute Booroomba instead, as the issues are similar when it comes to cultural acceptance!
As bro grem says...
